CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Police say seven teenagers wanted to see how a professional basketball player lives, so they walked through an unlocked door at the home of former Miami Heat player Ray Allen.

The teens were attending a party next door early Thursday when they entered the Coral Gables home. Allen's wife and children were sleeping upstairs. Police spokeswoman Kelly Denham says Allen's wife woke up, screamed and the teens ran. She called police.

The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/1oUyO3h ) reports the party host directed police to a home where they found the 18 -and 19-year-olds. They told police they thought the Allens had moved.

Dunham says officers questioned the teen but released them because there was no forced entry, no intent and nothing was taken. She says Allen's wife intends to file trespassing charges.
