You're in some guy's yard at night trying to steal (his point of view) his car. He is armed with a taser, and you shoot him?
I hope your boss has 'good lawyer coverage'...

If I were in your shoes I would get back to the truck, lock the doors, and call 911. Depending on the how bad the guy is acting you may or may not want to call the non emergency line. Program your cell for both. If you can get a camcoreder so that you can document the event from inside your truck. If he go's back inside for a gun and comes back out with one I have no more insight to give you INAL. Let me know if this advice is bad or flawed.
I would love to be on the Jury for any RepoThief harming anyone while stealing for a living no matter what the circumstances are.
I recently had a run in with a REPOThief because supposedly he was given my address as a back yard shop that had the vehicle in question which I later found to be a lie.
1. He showed up in front of my house blocking my drive parking his truck in front.
2. He proceeded to go past my front sidewalk leading to my front door.
3. He tried to look over my gated 7' fence.
4. A neighbor saw him & called for him to see what he was doing.
5. I saw all this while I was getting in the shower so all I saw at first was a Uninvited Trespasser on my property blocking my drive not coming to my front door.
6. So I put on some clothes, grabbed my gun & went out on my porch with gun holstered at side.
7. The Repo Thief was then told their he is by my neighbor.
8. He then walked across my yard not invited & I told him he was lucky I didn't consider him a threat.
9. He then said I deal with those all the time gesturing towards my gun.
10. I said you need to explain your self quickly & get that truck moved from my drive.
11. He asked if I was so & so I said no (if I hadn't just woke up I would have said none of your business).
12. He said my address was given from someone in FL.
13. I again said not here & you need to be more careful trespassing on someones property.
In conclusion he left which was a very smart move on his part since I can't stand a RepoThief & even if I knew the person I wouldn't have helped him anyway. As for him using deadly force on my property he wouldn't have had the chance.
So sorry to tell you RepoThief once you jump my fence I now will feel in fear of my life lucky for this one he didn't jump the fence.
- If he is going to carry while on business, he needs to get a resident MN permit and not depend upon an out-of-state non-resident permit.
- He needs to learn the MN laws on the use of deadly force.
- He needs to reconsider his attitude because, unless he does, he or someone else is going to wind up dead and either way it will be bad for him.

I love the term "repo thief" I was called that many times.
And I used to laugh my butt off as I rolled away with the car.
BTW. If you ain't done paying for it, it ain't yours.
Your right a re-possessor should not trespass.
But if you signed the loan papers you gave him permission to go on your property. I understand that was not the case in the post in referencing. But someone has to do the job.
