NASCAR Hall of Famer, and a NASCAR team owner, Richard Childress, recently took advantage of his Second Amendment rights. The accomplished old sack saved himself and his wife.
At about 10:30 p.m. ET, the couple heard a loud noise and glass breaking from the lower level of their multi-story home, which also activated a burglar alarm.
Richard Childress grabbed a handgun and, upon investigating, reportedly encountered the suspects in the lower level of the residence and fired off several shots at the intruders.
It’s unknown if any of Childress’s shots struck any of the assailants, who immediately fled the scene and remain at large… According to the WXII report, deputies said the suspects had the majority of their faces covered and appeared to have firearms in their possession.
According to the Winston-Salem Journal newspaper, Childress is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and convictions of the suspects.
The intruders scampered. Much like cockroaches under a light. One could have hoped an intruder was injured, a trail of blood giving him away. Alas, no such luck. Luck, however, had nothing to do with Mr. Childress spraying those bullets straight at the baddy guys. Extra assistance wasn’t even required.
