Around 11:30 a.m. a man broke into his ex-girlfriend’s home in Indianapolis, Ind. After kicking in the door, the man attacked his ex-girlfriend with a chair, in front of their two young children. The woman managed to get away from the man long enough to run upstairs and retrieve a gun. As the man followed her up the stairs, the woman fired at him, grazing his head and causing him to flee. The man was later picked up by the police and charged with forced entry, invasion of privacy and domestic battery. The man had a prior history of domestic violence, prompting his ex-girlfriend to get a restraining order put against him. But as Indianapolis Metropolitan Lt. Jeff Duhammel pointed out “Bottom line is, it’s just a piece of paper.” Lt. Duhammel went on to say, “She's got a right to protect herself and her children.”
