Around 2 a.m. a father and son at their home in Lexington, Ky. awakened to the sound of burglar Josh Slone kicking in their back door. The father grabbed his shotgun and met Slone at the door. The father forced Slone to the ground at gunpoint, while his son called 911. The police arrived and booked Slone on charges of burglary and criminal mischief.
Two hours later, Slone’s cousin attempted to break into the same home. The father and son team once again retrieved their guns, but Slone’s cousin was unable to get into the home before the police arrived to arrest him.
