    Man holds intruder at gunpoint till police arrive, with a funny twist

    This guy apparently sleeps in the nude, was woken up by an intruder in the home. Like any good Utahn he grabbed his gun, chased the guy, and held him at gunpoint till the police arrived (police were greeted by the victim, armed and naked, holding the criminal at gunpoint) . A pretty good read and a job well done for the homeowner.

    Anytime. Anywhere. Even if "in the buff."

    Kudos to the guy for having presence of mind after being awakened in the wee hours.

    If I met a home intruder while I was naked I'd have a lot of to clean up afterwards.

    I suppose it's better than cleaning up blood & brain matter, although I've done that too.

    Okay, I didn't clean it up... But I had to step around it a time or two.

    Is this what the movie "Naked Gun" was about?

    I'm just glad they didn't charge him with "assault with a friendly weapon"

    If he had acted differently the burglar may have gotten away. Sometimes seconds count. He done good. I love it when the good guy wins.

    Don't know what Utah law is but Mi. would have probably had you answering some questions once the guy booked outta' the house and was fleeing and , even though he tripped and you were holding him down, the perceived threat was over, had he wanted to get up and run , IDK if you could have popped him.

    Depends on state statutes, of course, as to whether "inside the four walls of the house structure" or "on the property" is what defines the presumption of threat. And, in some states, there's a distinction between drawing/holding someone and actually firing, in terms of the statutory level of force.

    Good point, about knowing the laws that apply in one's state. It varies so much.

    In this case, despite the guy being held on the ground just off the front porch, his being in the buff probably helped his case. Doesn't seem to have hurt him ... at least, until the pics come out.
