SAN ANTONIO -- San Antonio Police arrested local hockey player Scott Timmins early Monday morning.
Timmins is facing a charge of criminal trespassing after police say he entered into a home on Ridgecrest. "He was just on the couch, and he was telling my wife, ‘what are you doing in my house,’" said homeowner Benjamin Garza.
According to a police report, Timmins was inside Garza's home and was heavily intoxicated. Garza told News 4 he was tending to his mother at the time of incident, so his wife and three children were at home by themselves. "My wife and kids were traumatized from this, they didn't know what was going on," Garza said.
Garza's wife and children left their house through a back door and called 911. When police asked Timmins how he entered the residence, he told them he didn't remember. The police report goes onto say Timmins told police he "remembered being at the "Hanger," a bar nearby with several of his friends from the hockey team".
Benjamin Garza says the bars around his neighborhood have created some problems. According to Garza, some bar patrons use his street as a personal parking lot and more. "When it’s closing time, that's when we see beer bottles, fights, and people urinate in our plants, in our yards," added Garza.
Garza says he wants to try and do whatever he can to fix the problem. He's also contacted the city council representative for his district.
A spokesperson for Councilwoman Elisa Chan's office tells News 4 they are aware of the issue and are working with San Antonio Police and the Texas Alcoholic and Beverage Commission to combat the problem. We're told since last month, police have stepped up patrols in the area.
News 4 did reach out to the San Antonio Rampage for comment; so far we've not received a statement from the organization.
