From wect.com, we get word of some weekend Tar Heel tomfoolery: “Some quick thinking got a Wilmington man out of a tough situation early Saturday morning. Around 3 a.m. Saturday morning, the victim came home and noticed his front door was open. When he entered his home — ” Wait, what? The un-named dood rolls in at zero dark thirty, finds his front door open and…strolls in anyway? Hold on, it gets better . . .
Once inside, he found two intruders looking for easily pawnable property. Thinking fast, he did a little soft shoe.
The man pretended to be drunk long enough to get to his safe and pull out a gun. One suspect ran away and the victim held the other suspect at gunpoint outside his apartment. He then told the suspect to leave.
We’re not sure what Cape Fear Public Utility Authority is using to treat their water these days, but it appears be hampering the general level of cognition in the area. Locals may want to stock up on the bottled stuff for now.
