Homeowner Holds Intruder At Gunpoint Until Police Arrive

posted on August 25, 2016

A husband and wife were asleep in their Tennessee home earlier this week when they heard a crashing sound just before 6 a.m. The man got out of bed, retrieved his handgun and headed downstairs to investigate, where he soon discovered their front door had been kicked in. 

The Sevier County Sheriff’s Office told WATE.com the man then encountered the home invader—later identified as 23-year-old Darrick C. Whaley—who was also armed and told the homeowner someone was after him. The homeowner held the intruder at gunpoint and warned him not to come up the stairs. Within minutes the police arrived, disarmed Whaley without incident, and discovered meth and a syringe on the suspect during a search.

Whaley is currently in the Sevier County Jail, charged with especially aggravated burglary, aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm during a violent felony, and possession of a schedule II narcotic.
