If you're gonna break into someone's house to take a bath, it might as well be one of the highest paid performers in Vegas.
Celine Dion and her husband, René Angelil, were not at home on Tuesday when their Montreal mansion was invaded. The intruder, 36 year-old Daniel Bedard, was charged with breaking and entering, auto theft, and causing property damage. The man allegedly jumped the home's fence, then used a garage door opener he found in an unlocked vehicle to get inside.
Oh, and he also raided the fridge while he was there. I mean, why not? If you're going to break into someone's home for a stupid reason, I say go all out. Have a snack. Leave the toilet seat up.
Police spokesman Franco Di Genova said: "He opened the water faucets, was pouring a nice warmish bath (and) he even managed to eat some pastry that was in the fridge."
On a side note, this is probably the worst crime Canada has seen in years.
Police arrived at the home when the alarm system went off. That's when they found Bedard on his way to take a bath.
Di Genova continued: "The suspect was coming down the big staircase and was asking: 'Hey, guys what are young doing here?'"
So upon being met with the police, he basically just said, "sup?" Either this dude is crazy, or he's just really, really laid-back.
Officers reportedly arrested him on the spot. He told them he was a family friend, but officers checked with a security guard who confirmed that no visitors were expected.
The guy is apparently a resident of Laval, the suburb where Dion's house is located. The local media there reported that during his arrest, Bedard made suicidal threats and was taken to a hospital to be evaluated. If I can't take a bath in Celine Dion's home, I don't want to live!
Over the weekend, Dion helped to launch a six-hour telethon to support Muscular Dystrophy. Celine took the stage along with Jennifer Lopez, Lady Antebellum and Jordin Sparks. Dion has also been enjoying motherhood with her ten-month old twins, Eddy and Nelson. The singer recently told Hello! Canada:
"When I see the twins play together, it’s so beautiful. When you have two, you always feel bad having to put one down to console the other one, and vice versa. It breaks your heart a lot.”
