Don’t mess with an old guy. That’s good advice and a message that an Ann Arbor, Michigan criminal got loud and clear last week when he made the mistake of crawling into a 77-year-old man’s house through a kitchen window. “I don’t look for trouble,” the homeowner said. “It found me.”
When he heard the criminal, the man went to investigate.
Face to face with his intruder, he yelled and then pulled out his pistol.
“I got off one shot at him. I hope I scared him, but I missed him.”
He may have missed, but the sound of the gun firing was enough to change the home invader’s mind and sending him diving back out through he used to enter the house. The elderly gentleman is unharmed and told a reporter why he opened fire.
“Cause he was younger than me. No doubt stronger than me. I am 77 years old and it was in my house and I defended myself and I’d do it again,” he said.
Remember, folks, that all the smartest people assure us that no one needs a gun. They’re only likely to be used against you. Instead, you should dial 911 and wait for police to get there and handle the situation.
