Default Naked 91 year old stops intruder

LAKE WORTH, Fla. (AP) - 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 Monday 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.

Now I know i'm not fit to be a crook. I would have smelled the old man coin purse/metamucil mix and ran for the hills before I ever saw that .38 muzzle.

If I hear some one breaking in, and I happen to be dressed, I'm getting undressed, because we'll have time to kill before the authorities arrive.

And it will hurt.

So squeal like a pig!!!

Kudo's to that gentleman. The "Greatest Generation" is all but gone, but it's nice to see them go out with a "bang". They sure as hell don't make 'em like that anymore.

The warning shot should have been aimed about groin level.
