Chief Tango sends you his feel good story this morning, this time it happened in Tennessee where a good son saved his mother’s life;
Kenny Guffey said he was driving home from work around 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday when he called is 83-year-old mother, Christine Guffey.
“We were talking probably ten minutes and then all of the sudden her voice panicked and she said, ‘What are you doing in my house, oh no, he’s got a knife. What are you doing with the knife?’” said Guffey.
Luckily, Guffey was only two minutes away from her Balsam Road home. When he got there, he went inside with his gun drawn.
“I went through the door and [Colin Patrick Lynch, 29] was standing over her with the shovel, I didn’t see the knife, it was dark in there,” said Guffey.
Guffey said the intruder used the shovel to knock his gun out of his hand. He said he then tackled the man and got his gun back while his mother called 911.
“I sat on top of him and held him down and was able to grab my gun and put it to his head and told him not to move. And I looked down saw the knife,” said Guffey.
The police arrived later and took Lynch into custody. Guffey said that his whole family got gun permits about a year ago, and he’s thankful now that he did, although he never planned on needing a gun.
