Stop! Hammertime! 82-Year-Old Nails Home Invader

It happily keeps getting tougher for home invaders to ply their trade in Detroit.

After the past few weeks where 5 home invaders were shot, the latest home invader apparently looked like a nail to the 82-year-old resident of the home he tried to invade.

And quite properly, he got hammered for his temerity to break into another person's home.

The Detroit Free Press: 82-year-old Detroiter uses hammer to fend off home invader

In the living room, officers found a 33-year-old man with blood dripping from his head.

Johnson [Director of Media Relations for the DPD] said the man had kicked in a rear window of the house. Once inside, he encountered the 82-year-old man, who hit him on the head with a hammer.

The suspect was treated at the scene for his injury and arrested for home invasion.

Nicely done, that's how about 50 more years of life experience and a decent swing gets you one up on the intruder.

The older man was defending himself and therefore is not expected to face charges, Johnson said.

Gee, you think? That it even needs to be said shows the Detroit mentality still has a ways to improve, but it's getting there.

Good on an 82-year-old for teaching a home invading whippersnapper why you don't break into other people's homes.

Maxwell's silver hammer came down upon his head!
Bang, bang
Maxwell's silver hammer made sure that he was (almost) dead!

Ooh, extra style points for the Beatles reference.
