Burglar Calls 911 Because He Thought Homeowner Had Gun

I'm not sure if this has ever happened before because it's just so... ridiculous. Timothy James Chapek, the 24-year-old robber in the story, broke into a home and for some odd reason decided to take a shower. OK weird, but I can roll with it.

It get more ridiculous because when the homeowner came home (accompanied by two German Shepherds) and asked Chapek just what the hell he was doing in his house, Chapek panicked. Instead of making a run for it, Chapek freaked out and locked himself in the bathroom and then called 911 to tell the police he had just broken into a house and was afraid that the homeowner had a gun. Police came and arrested Chapek moments later. Genius. [CNN]
