Partying teenagers decide to check out Ray Allen’s house, end up freaking out his wife

Seven 18- and 19-year-olds were at a party next to NBA star Ray Allen’s house in Coral Gables, Fla., early Thursday, and as 18- and 19-year-olds are wont to do while partying, they got into a little mischief.

The Miami Herald has more:

It looked like no one was home about 2 a.m., so they walked in through an unlocked back door.

Allen wasn’t home, but his wife, Shannon Walker Allen, and their kids were sleeping upstairs, according to Coral Gables police spokeswoman Kelly Denham. When the intruders began walking around and making noise, Shannon Allen woke up and screamed, “What are you doing in my home?”

The intruders bolted, and Shannon Allen called police. Officers determined that nothing had been removed from the home on Tahiti Beach Island Road.

The next-door neighbor who had hosted the party directed police to an address where the seven intruders were located. The young men told police they thought the Allens had moved. Allen, who recently became a free agent, has not yet announced where he will play next season.

A Coral Gables police spokeswoman said that the men were questioned and released. Because there was no forced entry and nothing was taken, they were not charged with burglary, and because police did not witness the incident, they were not charged with trespassing. But the spokeswoman told the Herald that Allen’s wife can file trespassing charges with the state attorney’s office and plans to do so.
