A wheelchair-bound Ocean Shores, Wash., resident was asleep
at home when an apparent drunk toting a mass of uprooted blackberry
bushes came inside and commenced a meandering soliloquy. The stunned
homeowner realizing the man's behavior was as dangerous as it was
comic cautiously trailed the man to the kitchen door. Once outside,
the home invader attempted to come back in by kicking out a tall
window that shattered with a bomb-like report. By then, the
dumfounded resident had armed himself with a .22-cal. handgun. When
his attacker picked up a five-gallon propane bottle and hurled it
through yet another window hitting the homeowner the resident fired.
Police later arrested the man who turned out to be a biker in town
for a motorcycle gathering. Still alive, his chest bore a symbol
more ominous than any tattoo: the wound from a .22-cal. bullet.
