A Fairfield police officer said Aragon was “highly intoxicated and unaware of his whereabouts” when he found him, according to the report.

When asked whose house he had been in, Aragon said he “believed he had been in his friend’s house, however, when confronted by the homeowner he realized it was not,” according to the report.
