There are a lot of things that we don't know like:
The layout of the drive way

Was there conversation between the occupants and the property owner
Did the driver attempt to run the man down

Number of recent burglaries
But most of all, has the media made a factual report and not an embellished article to sell newspapers or to carry out an agenda.
Will we ever know the real story? If the old guy is proven to be guilty there will be a follow up, if he is proven to be not guilty, no.
Wasn't there, don't know what occured, but if any "ganstering" occured, well...some old folks aren't going to put up with that. Now it will be settled in court.

Attributed to Mark Twain:
“If you don't read the newspaper, you're uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you're mis-informed.”
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
a particular motel in NH. The GPS lead me miles away to a rural area. I never did find the place I was seeking
and had to stay at another motel which I just happened to stumble across. I as I checked in I asked
the clerk, "where am I," because I literally had no clue.
The story of a GPS error is however something that can be verified by examining the machine used; or by buying
an identical model from the same company and entering the address they stay they were looking for.
It is also possible that they merely mistyped the address they were looking for.
Still, if the home owner asked them to leave, then had time to get back to his house, had reason (spidey sense?) to
arm himself, my hunch tends to be that there is more to this than an old boy with a lifetime solid record suddenly losing it.
