A man, who was ultimately found to be intoxicated by a controlled substance, broke into a woman’s house and refused to leave. The homeowner held the intruder at gunpoint until police arrived. The intruder was arrested and charged with 1st degree burglary and public intoxication. (, Casey County, Ky., 01/17/22) 

A man unknown to the resident of a home smashed her sliding glass door with a shovel, all the while brandishing a firearm. In fear for her life, the woman fired her gun at the intruder. Police arrived on scene and treated the man’s non-life-threatening injury. He was then arrested for attempted burglary, carrying a gun without a license and resisting law enforcement.
