    GOOD: Homeowner Interrupts Burglary In Progress - Lexington County, SC

    Homeowner holds suspect at bay in pool - Crime & Courts - The State



    A Lexington County man suffered cuts — but still was able to detain a man police say was caught breaking into his home Thursday.

    The homeowner held the man — at gunpoint — in his swimming pool.

    Ruben Silva-Aguilar, 19, of Lexington, was arrested on charges of first-degree burglary and assault and battery with intent to kill in connection with the incident, the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department said. Silva-Aguilar is being held at the county detention center, awaiting a bail hearing.

    Reports indicate a homeowner on Gilbert Springs Court near Batesburg-Leesville arrived home Thursday as a burglary was taking place.

    According to reports, items were being carried out of the home’s back door when the homeowner was cut on the arm with a knife. The homeowner managed to throw the man into the pool.

    Deputies responded at about 3:35 p.m. to a call about a burglary in progress, Metts said. A neighbor directed them to the home’s backyard, where they found the homeowner — armed with a rifle — had forced the suspect to stand in the middle of the in-ground pool, reports say.
    Semi-Good on the homeowner. Would have been better if he were carrying and didn't have to get sliced on the arm.

    Problems I see:
    1. BG in water in February could potentially become hypothermic. Now for me it's the Aiki principle of protecting Uke, but for everyone else at least consider the possible liability. Put him in the hot tub instead :D

    2. Shooting into water is not often recommended.

    3. Stray rifle fire can't be good for the pool.
