A [Wisconsin] couple was awakened in the wee hours of the morning Wednesday to the sound of a burglar whistling in their basement. Then events really got strange: The man was discovered wearing the couple’s clothes and covered with barbecue sauce.

The homeowner grabbed an unloaded shotgun, confronted the intruder and ordered him upstairs, where he held him at gunpoint until police arrived, according to the criminal complaint.

Aaron M. Maurice, 35, 300 E. Fremont St., was wearing the woman’s jacket and the man’s hat and explained “he was in the military and that someone had tipped off the FBI that (he) was providing secrets to the terrorists.”

He told the police that the barbecue sauce, taken from the couple’s refrigerator, was “an urban disguise, if you will.”
