From West Jordan, Utah;

“Around 2:30 the motion detectors started going off,” the homeowner said. “I looked at the camera and saw a man walking up our driveway and climb into our vehicle.”

With bear mace in hand, the homeowner charged outside.

“He climbed out of the car and started running I chased him for about a block and a half he tried to climb a fence and that’s when I hit him with the first shot of bear mace,” the homeowner said.

That’s right – the first shot of powerful and potent chemicals meant for an aggressive grizzly.

“He actually came at me once when I hit it with the first time and then I hit it with him again,” the homeowner said.

Twice, then three times.

“He tried come at me again and I just emptied the can on him and then he threw his hands in the air and laid on the ground and said I’m done.” The homeowner then walked the criminal back to his porch where his wife was at the doorway on the phone with 911.

“His hands were in the air and he said yes sir yes sir and I told dispatch you’re not going to believe what I’m seeing right now because the guy was just in complete compliance with my husband,” the homeowners wife said.

The criminal stayed put until police got there.

“They didn’t say much to me, they pulled guns on him and searched him and put him in handcuffs and he went in the ambulance,” the homeowner said.

The man who allegedly broke in to their car is John Coopride. He has a long list of criminal history. Police booked him into jail on multiple charges.

“I was still in my underwear when police were out there with gun point and I was like oh my god I need to go get dressed,” the homeowner said.

From Dawsonville, Georgia;

According to authorities, a deputy gave someone a courtesy ride to a Chevron gas station on Georgia 400. But when the deputy tried to give the person money, that person began striking him in the head and face with a closed fist. Authorities said the suspect also tried to grab the deputy’s gun.

But then, a woman later described by Sheriff Jeff Johnson as a “good Samaritan,” shot the suspect who ran off into the parking lot of an adjacent McDonald’s restaurant as a result.

There, he began to assault an elderly woman. Other bystanders from the restaurant subdued the suspect until deputies were able to take him into custody.

The deputy and the suspect were taken to a local hospital for treatment.

From San Antonio, Texas;

    It took an entire can of bear spray to subdue that guy! Man! He must have been numb or number. That’s one way to subdue the man-bear.

    Seems like th holiday season has sent people off their nuts.

    There are real bears up in my backyard. I had one on the side deck trying to take my Barbecue apart to get at the drip pan. My bear spray spits out 12 gauge double ought buckshot. It is very effective.

    I thought the big story today would be the one about the lady who rescued the cop.
