"That Sucker's Coming Off": 83-Year-Old Homeowner Defeats Rooftop Trespasser in Satisfying Style

Dave Urbanski reports at the Blaze:

The poor guy had been making lame-brained decisions all morning -- but his worst misstep by far was landing on 83-year-old Wilford Burgess' rooftop.

After getting word from a caller who complained about being followed Tuesday morning, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department deputies spotted a man jumping from roof to roof in La Puente, California -- and the chase was on, KTLA-TV reported.

The suspect managed to keep cops on the run for several hours until he stopped on Burgess’ roof where a standoff commenced, the station said. Sheriff's department officials even used a crisis negotiator in an attempt to talk the guy down, KTLA added.

But after another hour went by, Burgess told KABC-TV he "got tired" of the trespasser's "games" -- then he grabbed a ladder and told deputies, "I'm going up on the roof -- that sucker's coming off."
