Hagedorn detains intruder at gunpoint

Here's a news item from the Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Republican lawmaker Marv Hagedorn says he detained an intoxicated intruder at gunpoint outside his Meridian home until police arrived on scene. Meridian police say they apprehended 21-year-old Nicholas Kuklish at Hagedorn's home. Police told the Idaho Statesman that Kuklish was extremely intoxicated and had used Hagedorn's hot tub, thinking he was at his own house located about a half-mile from the Hagedorn home. Hagedorn is a Navy veteran and one of the leading lawmakers who pressed this session for a bill allowing guns on college campuses. He sometimes carries a firearm at the Capitol. Hagedorn says he was awakened by his wife after 3 a.m. Friday, grabbed a semi-automatic pistol and found Kuklish outside. He told the Statesman it took at least four minutes for police to arrive. Kuklish is facing trespassing charges.
