The Whitley County Sheriff’s Office says Lonnie Paul, 67, admitted he had been drinking moonshine when he reportedly tried to break down the front door of a house.

Investigators say when that didn’t work he broke through a window with a knife in his hand.

He was greeted by the homeowner who had a shotgun.

The homeowner held Paul at gunpoint, still hanging out the window, until deputies arrived.

The homeowner told deputies he was protecting a two year old in the house.

The Sheriff says Paul’s lucky to be alive.

He is charged with first-degree attempted burglary, second-degree wanton endangerment, alcohol intoxication in a public place ("AI"), menacing, third-degree terroristic threatening and second-degree criminal mischief.
