RICHMOND HEIGHTS, Mo. (AP) - A woman is a little embarrassed, but well rested, after falling asleep testing a mattress at a Missouri store and spending the night there.

Richmond Heights Police Officer Allison Brown told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that officers were called to the undisclosed store shortly before 8 a.m. Tuesday after a worker found the woman wandering inside the business prior to its opening.

The woman told police she had been trying out a display mattress the evening before and must have fallen asleep. Police posted on social media that it was “the best mattress endorsement we’ve ever heard.”

Store operators declined to press charges.
