Home Intruder Stopped In His Tracks

posted on September 10, 2016

An off-duty Memphis police officer and mother, home with her 13-year-old daughter, heard a loud crash from the bathroom and found a wood log on the floor when she investigated. Suddenly, a man was crawling through a tiny broken window.

The officer acted on instinct, grabbing her gun and firing a shot at the intruder, who was halfway through the opening. The burglar quickly retreated, but was captured moments later lying in a driveway blocks from the officer’s home. 

Investigators said the intruder, identified as Jeremy Scott, resisted arrest. “The defendant also had dilated pupils and was acting in a way one does while on hallucinating narcotics.” Local residents agreed the homeowner did the right thing, with one neighbor saying, “That's the only way you can make sure you're protected and he's leaving.”
