The McCaslin family of Fort Myers, Florida had a rather strange experience while eating dinner on Thursday night.
Brian McCaslin and his two teenage daughters had been sitting at the dinner table enjoying a meal when there was an unexpected knock on the door.

"As I walked out of the area we were eating dinner at, there was an individual in the living room or front door area proceeding to advance into my house," he said.

"He was in. He was in the house."

What happened next was even more bizarre - the man claimed that he was in fact a ghost.

"He started to tell me that he was a ghost and I shouldn't be able to see him," said McCaslin. "He was shocked that I could see him. He thought he was walking around and that nobody could see him."

"I could tell his behavior was not normal."
Next thing he knew, the uninvited guest had left the house and approached a crew of workers who had been cutting down a tree outside.

Before anyone had a chance to react, the 'ghost' had got into one of the trucks and locked the door.

"He said he doesn't have a home and he's going to make their truck his home," said McCaslin.

It took a while, but the workers were eventually able to coax him out of the truck.

Shortly afterward he ran away - all the while wearing nothing but a bathing suit.

Efforts by local law enforcement to track the man down remain ongoing.

Doing that in Florida could have ended with a VERY poor outcome.  In fact, he wouldn't have much luck with it in Alabama, either.  You take your life in your hands when you decide to stroll into someone's home when they didn't invite you or even KNOW who you are.  Sheesh.

@Eldorado I'm not normally a violent person, but if someone walks into my home unannounced like that, there are going to be consequences.
