    Is it just me, or does that video look somewhat "staged"?

    To have the balance, and resolve to keep body slamming that door even while that intoxicated, but then he can't get himself off the handrail. Hmmmmm

    Although it does say officers arrived, but no arrest.
    Odd.

    The video link didn't work for me the first time, so I went back and refreshed until it did.
    And, yeah...looked a bit staged. Especially him laying there on the rail groaning like a zombie.
    Could be a hoax so I removed my original comment applauding her. Shame on her if it is.

    It says the video later captured him running off, and then the cops found him in a ditch, which apparently he'd already been in due to mud all over her front door, didn't arrest him because it appeared he needed medical attention, and took him to the hospital. Really odd.

    Yeah, I read that in the story and thought it was odd, too. But, stranger policing decisions have been made.
    Once I got the vid to load, I didnt make it past him getting himself off the rail. It was just too....corny? Is that the word Im looking for?



    ETA: I suppose he could have been under the influence of something other than alcohol and that's why there is no intent and a trip to the hospital involved.
    I wasn't there, don't know, and probably never will lol

    It did look like the side of his head where he was striking to door got messed up, and the head wobble looked pretty real, but agree that hanging on the rail vs slumping down is strange and unlikely.

    Can't you pop the POS through the door to prevent him from gaining access? Legally.

    You sure? Castle doctron doesn't allow it? Sitting there waiting for someone to kick in the door, not knowing what will happen next, versus ending the threat before they enter, for my family's sake seems the smarter, safer route

    It would affect an arrest depending on what his intent was determined to be. If he thought it was his house or like a case we had the guy was so messed up he thought wolves were chasing him the attempted B&E would only be a misdemeanor and officers aren't supposed to arrest on a misdemeanor that isn't committed in their presence. The homeowner would have to take out charges. (at least here in NC)

    He’s locked out and the door isn’t broken yet then I don’t think you’re in imminent danger. Wait until the door breaks, use the time to call 911 and position yourself, also disengage the safety if you have one.

    Castle doctrine still requires imminent danger, it just says that you don’t have to retreat.

    But to answer your question directly, no I’m not sure.

    That makes more sense, thanks for that. I guess if the door started breaking open would be a better time. Good points, sir.

    I've seen stranger things happen in real life than anything I've ever seen on TV. So yeah I don't think it was staged.
