Burglar Apprehended By Homeowner, Hogtied


Picture this: It's 6:00 a.m. You're getting ready for work, having your morning coffee, when you hear glass breaking near your daughter's bedroom. You quickly head over to investigate and see a crackhead breaking into your garage.

What do you do? Call the police? Evacuate? Get a weapon? Or bum-rush the idiot, hogtie him with rope, call the police, then leave him in your front yard for your wife to watch over while you go to work?

If you chose "bum-rush," then you might be from Oklahoma. Because that's exactly what happened when a burglar chose the wrong home.

NewsOn6 reports, "'I was like, "That's my man!" I was really proud of him, he's like a superhero,'" said Denay Houston of her husband, who apprehended the burglar.

As soon as the burglar was tied up, Houston said her husband turned to her and said he had to leave to go work. So, he called the police and let his wife watch over his catch. "That's just the type of person he is, you know? Business is business. 'I got to take care of business, he's safe, the police are coming, I got to go,'" she said.

It's hard to say what you'd do in this situation. I know if my family were in danger I'd probably head toward the dangerous individual while instructing my family to escape out another exit. I'd more than likely have pepper spray in hand, as they are all over my house. But if a gun or knife had been involved, it may not have turned out so well.

But! The broken window in this scenario would set off my home security alarm due to "glass break" sensors, and any intruder coming within 100 yards of my home would be alerted to me by my dog, who would also go after the idiot.

It's nice to see a little justice taking place. Nice job, Mr. Houston. Now get a home security system. Please, sir.
