    Naked man, 91, holds drunken intruder at gunpoint
    2 hrs 9 mins ago

    LAKE WORTH, Fla. Authorities said a naked 91-year-old man was able to hold a drunken intruder at gunpoint until deputies arrived. Robert E. Thompson jumped out of bed early Saturday when his dog starting growling and attacking the intruder. He said he got his revolver and went out back to let the guy know how he felt about home invaders.

    Thompson, a World War II veteran, said he didn't even notice he was standing outside in the dark without any clothes on.

    Authorities arrived to find a drunk intruder being held outside by a naked homeowner.

    The 26-year-old intruder was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on a burglary charge.
    Proving once and for all, it does not take pants to fight crime.

    I'm trying to get a mental picture of this scenario.

    Errr....maybe I don't want to do that.

    Hey...but, proof positive that the firearm truly IS the great equalizer when a 91 year old citizen can hold a burglar at gunpoint for Police.

    Kudos to you WWII Vet....now...go put some clothes on.

    Naked 91 year old guy with a gun? I need some mental floss now. That would sober some people up quickly. No offense intended to any senior citizens who frequent this forum.

    ....I remember sneaking in when I was in highschool. Hearing a revolver suddenly clicking into single action was my dads way of ask "Son is that you?"
    You can imagine I answered quite quickly.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    Old guy tactical: get naked and rattle your opponent's composure. Follow up with pistol.
    Sig 226, 228. Glock 19, 23. Smith Model 60,and 1911. XD45 Tactical. Mossberg 930 SPX.

    How we behave as gun owners is important. Posturing and threatening does not serve us well in the public eye.

    I fear if I will ever need to face someone in the middle of the night, I tend to be in the buff, and i figure if I do have to face someone at night, while they are rolling on the floor laughing at me, I can be on 911 getting someone there.

    Nude, Gun-Wielding 91-Year-Old Man Helps Make Arrest of Home Intruder
    Monday, September 21, 2009


    Print ShareThisLAKE WORTH, Fla. Authorities say a 91-year-old man in South Florida jumped out out of bed naked and held an intruder breaking into his house at gunpoint until deputies arrived.

    The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said Robert E. Thompson was awoken Saturday morning after a burglar climbed his backyard fence and was met by his charging dog, Rettt, a Rottweiler and Doberman Pinscher mix. Thompson heard the commotion, grabbed his .38-caliber revolver and phoned police without ever getting dressed.

    Deputies say Thompson fired a warning shot at 26-year-old Jose Pasqual after the intruder started to come toward him. Pasqual was booked in the Palm Beach County Jail and did not immediately have an attorney.
