TN: Woman shoots intruder under bed while security system is being installed

Woman broke up with boyfriend after discovering he has criminal record.

He promised to kill her.

She changed locks twice. He broke in three times.

She got a protection order and called ADT to install security system.

While ADT tech(s) was still in her home, she went to bedroom to fetch her cell phone to test it with the new security system.

The phone was missing. But she saw the feet of the guy she was trying to keep out under her bed. She told ADT to call 911

She shot underbed dude in the left foot.

Then she demanded he give the phone back, which he threw out from under the bed.

She held him at gun point (I presume still under the bed) until police arrived. He admitted breaking in, hiding, and taking her phone so she could not call 911.

He's facing charges of Aggravated Burglary, Stalking, Violating and Order of Protection and Theft.


This sounds like an unlikely plot device from Criminal Minds. I don't think she's going to need a lawyer to defend herself.

Makes you wonder how stupid people truly are. Did he really think she wouldn't see him? How bold and stupid are you to break into someone's home, while they are there I might add, and not expect to get caught?

I don't think she will need one either, good for her to make the appropriate steps to keep him out.

Follow-up:

If I read this correctly, the under-the-bed ex-boyfriend was convicted of felony stalking and is serving a six year sentence starting this past September. He is also awaiting trial for possession of controlled substances and felon-in-possession charges.

Ouch!!! He should have just been an illegal and “found” a gun, then he would be off free!

Sad, that's all I can say. I hope she never has to lay eyes on that scum again.
Do what you say you're gonna do.
