According to a string of tweets on Sept 25 on Finn's account, a young male attempted to enter Finn's residence on the evening of Sept. 24. "Last night a drunken young man beat loudly on the door and smashed out our window," the Crowded House frontman wrote.
However even more puzzling was what ensued. "He then dialed the police and had himself arrested," Finn added with a subsequent tweet, saying that "U.K.'s dumbest criminal had the chance to flee but chose to wait for the police."
There's no word if Finn interacted with the man but it appears he didn't enter the premises. "The shirtless young man believed he was somewhere, but alas he was somewhere else," the rocker wrote a few hours later. A police constable contacted the singer to say the accused apologized for the incident and "is willing to pay for the damages."
It seems that Finn got off a bit easier than Moby earlier this year when an intruder named 'Robbie' broke into his California home after tripping on acid. Moby found the guy in his living room and asked him to leave, but not before giving him a sweatshirt and money for breakfast.
Finn's latest project Pajama Club -- which also features his wife Sharon Finn -- released their self-titled album earlier this year. The band is performing later this week on BBC's Later With Jools Holland.
