Get Off My Lawn! Homeowner Sprays Thief's Truck With Shotgun


A homeowner shot at the getaway truck of the thief who was attempting to free some lawn equipment from his property late Friday night.

WTVF reported:

The incident was reported overnight Friday at a home on Piccadilly Row in Antioch, Tennessee.

Officials with Metro Nashville Police said a suspect tried to steal lawn equipment from a man’s yard.

The homeowner, armed with a shotgun, came outside and fired several rounds.

The blasts missed the suspect but struck the alleged getaway vehicle. Another person inside the car was able to drive away.

Police said because the victim was outside his home, he could not legally fire at the suspects.

At this time, the homeowner was not facing charges since no one was apparently struck by gunfire. The shotgun was taken into custody as evidence.


While no description of the suspects or their vehicle, police are asking anyone with information regarding the incident to call Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
