    Yeah, I know... it's not Newton

    Cops: Naked Man, 91, Thwarts Intruder

    AP

     

    LAKE WORTH, Fla. - Authorities said a naked 91-year-old man was able to hold a drunken intruder at gunpoint until deputies arrived. Robert E. Thompson jumped out of bed early Saturday when his dog starting growling and attacking the intruder. He said he got his revolver and went out back to let the guy know how he felt about home invaders.

    Thompson, a World War II veteran, said he didn't even notice he was standing outside in the dark without any clothes on.

    Authorities arrived to find a drunk intruder being held outside by a naked homeowner.

    The 26-year-old intruder was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on a burglary charge.

    When seconds count, the police are mere minutes away.

    The police must have had a good chuckle when that was all over.

    It's great that he can still thwart at his age.

    This is pretty funny...thanks for posting.  From the article on USA today the dog is a doberman rottie mix, it would appear the intruder was lucky that this ended up this way instead of being shredded AND shot.  Priceless.
