Man Breaks Into Governor's Residence, Details Emerge

Last month a homeless man was arrested for breaking into the home of California Governor Jerry Brown in Sacramento. But now, the homeless man has revealed his motives behind breaking and entering into the governor's private home. 

“He’s an open-door policy kind of guy, so I figured the door would be unlocked, or else I wouldn’t have ran over there if I thought the door would be locked,” said 51-year-old Steven Seeley, according to Fox News.

According to Fox News, the homeless man tried breaking and entering because "he figured the sanctuary state politician was 'an open-door policy kind of guy.'" 

Seeley was arrested on April 19 and treated at a hospital for cuts he received while breaking a window and jumping a fence.

Believing that the governor would welcome him into the home — since he is an "open-doors kind of guy" — wasn't the only reason for breaking and entering, according to reports. In an interview with the Sacramento County Jail, for instance, Seeley claimed that he has never been diagnosed with a mental disorder. But he does claim to experience delusions and may be confused about the series of events. 

"I was looking for the security staff, but I didn't see anybody," he said. "I thought the governor was in trouble, I thought he was in danger of being attacked by the wild animals, so I walked in. I yelled 'Jerry!'"

Fox News reports that once inside the governor's house, he then his inside of a closet in order to avoid the wild animal. He then jumped out a window into the fenced-in yard. He then fled the property. While climbing over the fence to escape, he accidentally cut his arm and was then taken by a neighbor to the local hospital, where he was later arrested by police. 

The man is apparently an almost daily user of methamphetamine. 

In recent news, another southwest plane has been forced to make an emergency landing after the window shattered mid-flight.
