CORAL GABLES, Fla. - Police say seven teenagers wanted to see how a professional basketball player lives, so they walked through an unlocked door at the home of former Miami Heat player Ray Allen.
The teens were attending a party next door early Thursday when they entered the Coral Gables home. Allen's wife, Shannon Walker Allen, and children were sleeping upstairs. Police spokeswoman Kelly Denham says Allen's wife woke up, screamed and the teens ran. She called police.
Ray Allen was not home at the time, reports CBS Miami.
The Miami Herald reports the party host directed police to a home where they found the 18 -and 19-year-olds, six males and one female. They told police they thought the Allens had moved.
"[Shannon Allen] stated that she heard people in her house.... She saw flashes of light and she screamed out, 'What are you doing in my home?' They immediately fled the home," said Coral Gables Police Officer Kelly Denham, according to the station.
Denham says officers questioned the teen - none of whom had prior offenses - but released them because there was no forced entry, no intent and nothing was taken. Police said the teens have been charged with trespassing, a misdemeanor.
