He had a good idea, then he had a bad idea.
A homeowner living in the 1300 block of Jefferson Street told police he was awakened before 5 a.m. today and saw the silhouette of a man standing in his bedroom.His good idea was to run away from the man with the gun. His bad idea was to threaten the man with the gun.
The homeowner retrieved a weapon and followed the man as he fled.
When the alleged intruder made a threatening gesture, the homeowner shot the suspect in the leg.
For his trouble he spent some time in hospital and was released into police custody.
Shot and arrested makes for a bad day for the bad guys.
Self-defense is a human right.
