A Smyrna, Ga., man's career as a burglar "turned on a dime,"
according to Fulton County police. The intruder had used a
screwdriver to break into a carport window and enter a home in South
Fulton County. The man quickly picked up a television set and took
it out to his car. Then he returned to the house and entered a back
bedroom where he accidentally dropped some change on the floor. When
he bent down to retrieve the money, he came face-to-face with a
frightened Christopher Daniel who was hiding under the bed. Daniel,
who lives in the home with his parents, had called the police with
the phone he still held in one hand. In the other hand was a .357
Mag. handgun from which he fired, hitting the intruder three times.
Police arrived within minutes and charged the intruder with
burglary. If the man hadn't dropped the coins, he might have made a
clean getaway, said Wenda Phifer, a Fulton County police
