Spot the drunk

Online. Matchpoints. You are North, playing with well known partner against known expert opponents.

Green against red you got:

K10

J92

 AKQJ1053

 J

RHO passed and now is your turn to speak.

You smiled to yourself recalling the case when your crazy partner opened 1NT with hand like that. Thanks God, you are normal human being. Gambling 3NT would make some sense, but with one opponent passed, you prefer to bid slow – 1

Without much hesitation LHO bid 4. Too much for slow bidding.

Partner in perfect tempo bid 5 and RHO, also in perfect tempo, pass.

With lack of first round side controls, you are passing too.

Now LHO hesitates and finally bids 5. Double from the partner; pass from the right.

You did not get additional 1st round controls during the bidding and double from partner did not ask you to bid. Therefore, you pass. Agree?

Bidding seems a little suspicious and, as a matter of fact, one person around the table was drunk. Could you spot who?
