Because he heard the deputies

Because he heard the deputies and tried to hide? Suspects hiding in closets happens quite often. It happens when you

Article states that he was drunk so passing out on the couch makes sense too.

Misinformation

He was not hiding in a closet, he was passed out on a bed/couch. He woke up as he was being dragged down the stairs. Why would someone hide in a friends closet unless he was fooling around with said friends wife/girlfriend?
