A Minnesota Vikings football fan was apparently so drunk he broke into a police station after his team lost to Seattle, believing it was his own home.

State Fair police spokeswoman Brooke Blakey said the 30-year-old man appeared to be under the influence when he entered the station, which resembles a house.

People use the Minnesota State Fairgrounds to "tailgate" - the US practice of holding a party from the back of a parked vehicle - at Vikings games, which are played at the nearby TCF Bank Stadium at the University of Minnesota.

A patrol officer discovered the fan inside the station and police say he is facing trespassing charges.
