While fetching wood from her garage one evening, a 70-year-old woman
heard what sounded like people fighting. "I looked over into the
road to see what was going on, and about that time a guy comes
running around the house," she explained. The woman ran inside, got
her gun and dialed 9-1-1. The man circled the house, pounding on all
the windows. He broke through the living room window and knocked
over the television. The woman can be heard on the 9-1-1 tape
yelling at the man, "You stay right where you're at!" Police say she
aimed her gun at the intruder and told him, "If you come any closer,
you're going to be dead." She then ordered him to the floor and he
obeyed, collapsing into a fetal position. He remained that way until
police arrested him.
