Thinking about lunch and the poison ivy on his feet, Eddie
Roscoe stopped by his house in Albemarle, North Carolina, and
interrupted a burglary. Two men fled, but the third headed toward a
bedroom, with Roscoe in pursuit. Cornered, the burglar turned and
fired a shot, wounding Roscoe in the hand and side. After a struggle
Roscoe picked up a shotgun, loaded it and held the would-be crook
for police, who also apprehended the accomplices.
