Idaho Solon Holds Gun On Intruder

GOP Rep. Marv Hagedorn confronted an intoxicated intruder outside his Meridian home shortly after 3 a.m. Friday and held him at gunpoint until police arrived. Hagedorn, a 20-year-veteran of the Navy, is among the legislators who pressed for a bill allowing guns on college campuses. He sometimes carries a sidearm at the Capitol. Meridian police said Nicholas Kuklish, 21, was "very intoxicated" and apparently used Hagedorn's hot tub before attempting to enter Hagedorne's home. Police said Kuklish "believed he was at his own residence" when he tried to get inside. Police said Kuklish's blood-alcohol content was three times the legal limit for driving/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: Did Hagedorn handle this situation properly?
