AND IN SPORTS

San Diego Padres pitcher Jacob Nix was arrested Sunday for criminal trespassing after trying to get into an Arizona house through a doggy door, prompting a resident of the home to kick him and use a stun gun on him, according to police.

Shocker: Nix told police that he thought he was at his own home, even though he doesn't have a doggy door and usually enters through the front door. He could not explain and would not elaborate further why he tried to enter someone else's house. Court documents said he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Nix's defense:
"Of course I was stoned. I don't want people thinking I would do something this dumb sober."

I think he was under the influence of drugs washed down by large amounts of alcohol.

It was a flashback to when he tried to steal home

He heard a rumor he was going to be traded to the Marlins.

Kevin Meerschaert--The Roswell space aliens clarified that Nix was being traded to the Martians, not the Marlins.

Next time wear a dog costume.

Didn't we see this scene in the Ferris Bueller movie?
