Well folks, this is painful to report…but we must do, what we must.
Last week, a sheriff’s deputy was getting ready for work. As most folks, he was showering before he left the house, about 11 am Friday morning - get’n ready to serve and protect on the evening shift.
Story goes…the deputy finished his shower, was in the process of wrapping his towel
See PAINFUL, page 10
around himself when he yanked open the bathroom door leading into his bedroom. Next thing he saw, was a guy - rummaging through the chest of drawers in his bedroom. - INSIDE his apartment.
Imagine his surprise! Heck, imagine the crook’s!
Now you know, they both had to have had that deer in the headlights look…and you know it felt like time stood still.…. For a split second at least, then - BAM!!! Lead flew!
Now in all fairness, the toga tote’n deputy did order the crook to freeze - Ha! That appeared to be just the motivation the crook needed to break the sound barrier… leaving, that is….with the toga tote’n deputy in hot pursuit! Um hum, foot pursuit, that is.
That foot pursuit, well, it ended rather abruptly. Seems, about 8 steps OUTSIDE his apartment screaming freeze, in the freezing temperatures, the deputy realized he had crossed the threshold of his humble abode … sans his toga, wearing nothing but a smile and waving his pistol - he went back inside and called 911.
The crook got away, and the deputy, well, the harassment from coworkers -it will be painful …for a very long time.
