When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. When life gives you a defensive gun use involving a naked man, craziness, and poop on the floor? Write it!
"We woke up 6:30 Sunday morning (June 22nd) to a naked guy walking into our bedroom," said Tricia Gillaspy. "My husband's like, 'What the heck is going on?' And, I'm screaming in utter panic."
Tricia and her husband moved into their new home in Kuna, Idaho just last week. This was not the housewarming they were hoping for.
After startling the couple the intruder, identified as 25-year-old Matthew Coomes, hurried to another bedroom and put his shorts back on.
Would you be shocked to know that Coomes had been drinking quite a bit?
Tricia's husband grabbed his handgun and yelled, "Get out of my house, now!" but Coomes didn't respond.
Tricia's husband put the gun to Coomes' head and told him, "I said, get out!"
That got his attention and Coomed started to slowly walk out at gunpoint as the husband called 911. "He's like, 'There's a guy in my house. I'm going to shoot him, you better get a cop here now,'" according to Tricia.
He left the house but not the property. When police arrived and took control of the scene that's when Tricia and her husband realized that Coomes had run amok inside the house prior to barging into their bedroom. I think Tricia tells is best:
"He took this sink sprayer out and this drawer was in there. He put it in the drawer, turned it on full blast hot water, it filled that entire drawer full. It flooded my entire kitchen," said Tricia. "He craps on my floor, and he must have been playing in it because he streaked it down the side of my walls. The stain is gone finally, thank goodness."
Yup, he dropped a deuce in the living room.
Coomes told police he had no recollection of entering the home or using a spray nozzle in the kitchen. He also had no clue how poop got on the carpet or why his shirt and underwear were on the floor of the couples home.
And what did police do? They gave Coomes two misdemeanor citations and a ride home.
Tricia said, "I go running out the door, and am like, 'What are you doing!?' I'm like, 'This guy deserves to go to jail!'"
He didn't. And people wonder why people think they can get away with anything these days.
Here's a question I never thought I'd ask:
What would you do if woke to a naked man in your bedroom and found out he had pooped on the floor and spread it on the walls?
