Oklahoma Man Holds Home Intruder At Gunpoint Until Police Arrive

posted on May 18, 2017

If you’re drunk or high, don’t drive. Also, you shouldn’t kick in the door of a stranger’s house. And then you definitely shouldn’t blast open that door if the resident is an armed homeowner.

KOCO-TV is reporting that 28-year-old Travis Thrash burst into a home just south of Oklahoma City and started down the front hallway—while admittedly under the influence of drugs. However, the homeowner, a military veteran, pulled his gun and shielded his wife and three children. You can hear the homeowner telling Thrash to “get on the ground” on the 911 call while the family waited for officers.

Grady County Sheriff Jim Weir calls the suspect lucky. “We have the ‘Make My Day’ Law,” Weir said. “Thrash was lucky the homeowner had the wherewithal, the training, experience—kept him at gunpoint and forced him outside the house.” Thrash, who has other felony and drug charges, was arrested for burglary and public intoxication.
