Nude, Gun-Wielding 91-Year-Old Man Helps Make Arrest of Home Intruder

LAKE WORTH, Fla. — 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 Saturday 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.

  • I'm a very visual person and picturing this makes me cringe.


    Well, lets hope the intruder is just as visual as you and that the memory of what he faced that night scares him straight.  LOL.

    BUT I'm thrilled the guy could defend himself and stop a criminal.
