Burglar calls 911 to report homeowner holding him at gunpoint

December 7, 2012

Click the link and watch the news story, if only for a couple of good laughs in the 911 calls.

A suspected burglar called 911 after the owner of the home he broke into caught and held him at gunpoint.

The suspect, Christopher Moore, placed the emergency call in Springtown, Texas, during the botched burglary attempt early Tuesday after James Gerow, the homeowner, and Gerow’s son pointed guns at him as he sat in his pickup truck parked in the driveway.

“I’m out in the country somewhere,” Moore told the 911 operator during the 10-minute call. “Some guy’s got a gun on me.”

Gerow’s wife, Lindy, placed a concurrent call to 911 that confirmed Moore’s account.

Later in the story, the dad’s telling his son to “shoot him in the legs” if he gets out of the truck, but in the video he says there was really no reason to shoot him. True dat. The guy was trying to leave. I don’t think you can legally shoot a guy (never mind morally) in that situation. Even in Texas.
