    GOOD: 91 Y/O WWII Vet Stops Home Invader - Lake Worth, FL

    Naked 91-year-old holds burglar at gunpoint | old, burglar, year - Top Story - CBS Channel 12 News



    LAKE WORTH, Fla. -- This next homeowner is a force to be reckoned with. He's 91, he was buck naked, but he and his dog decided to go after a would be burglar.

    He held the man at gunpoint until police arrived. Deputies say they found the would be burglar on the back porch by the pool drunk and trembling, probably not how he thought it would all go down.

    He got more than he bargained for when he decided to mess with this elderly man and his trusty rottweiler mix. 91-year-old Robert Thompson and his 5-year-old dog Rett tag-teamed a thug trying to break into their Lake Worth home Friday night.

    Thompson said, "I think the guy was scared to death, he was screaming." Thompson jumped out of bed, totally naked, went to go check things out with Rett by his side.

    He said, "I started to let him out the door and he was so anxious he got caught in the door."

    According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office 26-year-old Jose Pascual was the man on the porch. Rett pinned Pascual, but this purple heart World War Two Veteran wanted back-up.

    Thompson said, "I went in and got my cell phone and dialed 911 and got my gun."

    Thompson says Pascual was coming toward him so he fired a shot. Authorities say he held the drunk intruder at gunpoint until deputies arrived, but he's giving his best bud Rett all the credit for the happy ending.

    He said, "He's the hero."

    Pascual was arrested, Thompson was taken to the hospital. One of the shots he fired ricocheted giving him a minor battle wound. He hopes the bad guys learned a lesson about messing the boys at 504 North C Street.

    "If anyone violates my home they better be careful, that's all I got to say," said Thompson.

    Thompson tells us that he has been living alone since his wife passed away 10 years ago, and that having Rett around makes life easier. The suspect in this case is facing burglary charges.
    Good on Mr. Thompson and Rett.

    Dang it, did a search on the scumbags name, and the dogs name and nothing came up. Mods please close.
