(Newser) – Nicole Lynn Daugherty says she doesn't know how or why she ended up in a stranger's bed early Sunday—but she's now facing burglary, trespassing, and criminal mischief charges for it, the AP reports. State police responding to a home alarm around 4:15am in Liberty Township, Pa., say they started searching the residence after spotting a broken window and found Daugherty in a bed (the homeowner wasn't home at the time), the Centre Daily Times reports.

According to the criminal complaint, Daugherty seemed out of it and smelled like alcohol, which may have been the remnants of the party she told police she had attended earlier. She also told them she couldn't recall how she got into the house. She's being held on $10,000 bail, with a preliminary hearing set for today. (At least she didn't log on to Facebook while she was there.)
