I talked to his friend last night. The dude is still in a coma.

He's essentially still in a coma. The Docs are titrating him down from all the drugs in his system. His pupils dilate when a light is shone in them and he's apparently opened his eyes voluntarily a few times, but is still mute and inactive.

Well that changed Sunday night. My wife and I were watching TV when around 10:30 PM we heard loud thumps and crashes. I went out in the back yard and didn't see anything, so I let it go.

Shortly after, more thumping and banging and now it sounded like something/someone was hitting or banging on our house. It was loud and the house shook.

I stuck my Model 37 in my waistband and grabbed my flashlight and went out front. (My 37 lives in an Uncle Mike's IWB holster and is either on me or next to me at all times)

So I get out front and walk to the driveway and there is my neighbor. I asked him if he heard the noise and he responded that it was him. So, I said okay, thinking that maybe he's doing some work on the house or something. After all, he's kind of strange. So I went back into the house.

A little while later, I went in the back yard and noticed that two fence boards were down, it looked like thay'd been kicked in. That explains the thumping on our house, the fence is mounted to the garage wall, and the sound transmitted that way.

I figured that he was probably loaded, and nothing good would come of confronting him right then, and the noise had stopped, so I figured I'd talk to him in the morning.

So, Monday morning I knocked on his door before I went to work, but there was no answer. His porch light was still on, so I figured he was probably passed out and sleeping it off.

After work that day, I again knocked on his door, the porch light was still on and still no answer.

So, come Tuesday morning, I heard voices at the front of his house. So, I took a look and it was a cop trying to talk to him. His face was covered in blood, he was weaving, speechless almost to the point of being catatonic.

I then could also see that he had smashed a concrete and brick retaining wall and a wrought iron gate. (all his property) Oh yeah, he was only dressed in his underwear and they were filthy.

Another cop showed up and eventually the Fire Dept. as well. They hauled him off in an ambulance.

The police officer took my information and told me that he's on psych meds and there were empty booze bottles all over his house. BTW, it's his parents house. The officer told me that the inside of the house is demolished.

Later that afternoon, I spoke with the neighbor on the other side of him and learned that he has been violent and aggressive towards him.

My guess is that he's at the nut hut for a 72 hour hold and will be back tomorrow. When I next see him, I will politely explain to him that it would be a mistake to mess with either my wife, me or our stuff. I'll be as nice as I can, but he will get the message.

Apparently, the neighbors have called the police on this guy any number of times and I wasn't aware of it, as he's never messed with us before.
In Texas, you could shoot him for messing with your fence.

That being said, our CHL instructor told us years ago that, if you ever wind up shooting someone, regardless of the circumstances, even if you were protecting your family or yourself from danger, it will change your life forever and some people can't cope with that change.

I'm not saying that you were going to shoot the guy. I'm certainly ready and prepared to, but hope I never have to. It would suck.

He's out of the coma as of yesterday, but is still extremely groggy and nonverbal. He's been moved to a regular room.

I think that you and WDB need a confab. Trade secrets and experiences.

I've had some loopy neighbors in the many places I've lived, but nothing that crazy.

Thread forthwith.

The neighbors friend called last night. He's been moved out of the hospital and into the Psych Ward at a convalescent home in a nearby town.

Apparently he's now lucid, or what passes for lucid at the nut hut. Of course he has no memory of his last bender.

In the truth is stranger than fiction department, he may be discharged and home for the weekend.
