Michael and Amy Stephens were at home with their two young daughters when they saw deputies speeding past their home. The couple then overheard on their police scanner that there was a man in the area being sought by police. Michael grabbed a flashlight and headed outside to investigate and to make sure his family's home was secure. As he stepped outside, he saw the 26-year-old fugitive nearby. Michael attempted to detain him while Amy dialed 911. The fugitive was able to grab Michael's flashlight and started swinging it wildly over his head. Amy appeared with a .243 rifle and warned the man that she would shoot. Soon after, the fugitive was arrested and booked ons several preliminary charges. Michael suffered a few stitches, but was otherwise unharmed. (Daily Inter Lake, Evergreen, MT, 1/5/13)

A woman scared off men accused of breaking into homes by using her gun for protection, according to court documents. James Deweese, 30, of Michigan City, and David Keck, 26, of Crown Point, each were hared with residential entry and criminal mischief in connection with the March 11 incident. A resident there told police she saw a black Ford Fusion pull up on her driveway. A man left the car, walked to her door and began knocking and ringing the doorbell for several minutes, court records state. The woman told police she grabbed her handgun for protection because she was suspicious of the man. The man allegedly kicked in her door, and the woman pointed her gun at him. The man ran back to the car, which was driven by another person, and the woman took a picture of the car on her cellphone, court documents state. (North West Indiana Times, 3/22/13)
