Man Pretends to Be Drunk to Scare Off Intruders

A Wilmington man frightened away house intruders by pretending to be drunk. Although details are few, WECT reports that when the victim came home to two unwelcome strangers standing in his apartment, he acted drunk while making his way to the gun stored in his safe. The suspects fell for the performance (at least long enough for the man to arm himself) and ran away at gunpoint. [WECT]
