Michael Spearman heard an unusual noise in his house one morning
and went to investigate. Spearman discovered two men rummaging
through his gun cabinet. The homeowner had armed himself with a
.357 Mag. revolver and, when he confronted the intruders, shot at
one would-be burglar, who fled. Spearman then held the other man at
gunpoint until sheriff's deputies arrived. "I didn't know what to
think when I saw two men in my house," Spearman recalled. "One kept
advancing at me; I had to do something." Sheriff Herbie Johnson
praised Spearman's quick thinking. "Every person has the right to
defend themselves and their homes," Johnson said. "This man had the
presence of mind to handle the situation. He captured one suspect
and was able to give us a good description of the other." Johnson
said Spearman's actions might help them solve several burglary
