POUNCED ON: Homeowner with Gun and Female Boxer Tackle Burglar

pounceThree burglary suspects were caught after being interrupted by a gun-firing Florida homeowner, helped by a neighbor who is an ex-boxer neighbor, police say.

“I knew I couldn’t shoot them. Legally you can’t shoot them when they’re running away. So I pumped one into the ground. Which was good, it alerted all my neighbors,” Roberts told the TV station.

One of those neighbors was Beverly Rose, a former professional boxer, who sprang into action and tackled one of the fleeing suspects, Justin Goodrich, 23.

“I did make a comment to him, how he liked being caught and tackled by a 44-year-old woman; he just kept shaking his head,” Rose said.
