Now imagine you are taking a nice, warm, relaxing shower when suddenly you are startled by somebody unexpected coming into the house with two large dogs.. Imagine your horror as you realize that they may be armed and intent on making you their personal target at that moment...what do you do?
Well you could lock yourself in the bathroom and call the police and let them know that this somebody is armed and may shoot you.....and that you broke into their house...and that they are the homeowner...and you were in their shower....
...yeah, true story...check it out...
Way I see it, either this guy was homeless and just wanted to shower to get cleaned off or he has some type of sexual fetish that he was trying to get his jollies to...either way, he got caught "with his pants down" on this one...
Intruder calls 911, afraid homeowner may have gunPolice say Timothy James Chapek was taking a shower when the homeowner returned.
(CNN) -- This time it was the intruder who called 911.
A man who broke into a house in Portland, Oregon, called police -- afraid the homeowner may have a gun.
The suspect, Timothy James Chapek, was in the bathroom taking a shower when the homeowner returned to the house Monday night, Portland police said in a statement.
Accompanied by two German shepherds, the homeowner asked Chapek what he was doing in the house.
Chapek locked himself in the bathroom and made an emergency call, police said. He said he had broken into the house, the owner had come home, and that he was concerned the owner might have a gun.
The homeowner also called the police to report that he had found a man in the house.
Police with dogs took Chapek, 24, into custody "without incident," they said. He was booked for criminal trespass.
They did not say if the homeowner did in fact have a gun.
I am surprised how many people responding to the article comments brazenly responding that they would of shot him on the spot...these are the people you read about being charged by the prosecutor whether or not there is a castle doctrine in effect in your state. I think you would be hard pressed to show how a naked man with nothing in his hand except himself posed a real and tangible threat to you when you had a firearm pointed at him..but thats just me thinking out loud...
