Homeowner shoots naked intruder found choking dog, police say
NBC Miami ^ | January 2, 2013 | Donna Rapado and Brian Hamacher

A naked intruder who was trying to choke a pet Rottweiler was shot by a homeowner in Miami Wednesday morning, police said.

The bizarre incident happened around 5 a.m. when the occupants of the home were awoken when they heard a commotion and dogs barking.

When the homeowner went to check out the noise, he confronted the suspect, who was completely naked and trying to choke one of the dogs, police said.

"He comes out and spots a person who is not only fighting with this dog but is naked fighting with this dog," Miami Police spokesman Det. Willie Moreno said.

The homeowner opened fire twice, hitting the suspect in the leg once. The homeowner held the man until the police arrived.

The intruder was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital where his condition was unknown. Police said he tried to bite the homeowners and police and workers at the hospital, and may be under the influence of drugs.

"For right now it does appear to be a justified shooting," Moreno said. "This individual was acting irrational, fighting with the dog, and not only that, but at the point that the homeowner attempted to get this individual's attention, he immediately jumped onto the owner and started fighting with him."

Police said the suspect, who refused to give his identity, will be charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling with assault, animal cruelty, resisting arrest with violence and lewd and lascivious behavior.

Maybe the offender thought he was a replicant — and the home owner was a Blade Runner!

“...may be under the influence of drugs”.

Sounds like a real possibility (duh).

Going hand-to-paw with a rottweiler when you’re naked, could be really rough on the dangly parts...

Yup. Just think what might have happened if he’d picked this fight with a Doberman, a breed known for their fondness for human crotches. However, in the perp’s eyes, he was just giving the dog a fair fight since the dog was naked too.

I checked this thread to see if that joke was made, hoping that I'd be able to make it first.

Post #3. Not bad, my friend.

Go Navy!

Can you imagine what the dog was thinking with this naked guy on him? Maybe it was a her? I don’t know but naked guys and dogs don’t mix.

Yes. I, too, am glad they’re both the same story. Even one such incident is a bit too much to think about ...

He shot him in the leg? He is really lucky it was not my dog or that I was not the one who found him choking the dog and I had the gun. The leg is not where I would have shot him.

Lord, forgive me, but that sentence just make me laugh. Naked fighting is probably the worst kind.

What was wrong with the Rottweiler that he didn’t simply tear this guy apart (unless it was a young one)?? I thought Rotts wouldn’t stand for this sort of crapola.

"At least he didn’t “Choke-the-Chicken”!"Likely not but...

I had read some of the insane ramblings of McAfee.

Apparently this whole bath salt craze is driven by the "hyper-sexuality" of the high.

Someone needs to do a rape kit on that dog.
