An 83-year-old man who’d had enough pushed an intruder off of his roof after a nearly five-hour standoff with police.
It all started at about 6:30 a.m. Wednesday when someone called 911 reporting they were being followed, KTLA reports. That’s when police found a man jumping from one rooftop to another as he tried to run from them.
The chase lasted several hours, despite a crisis negotiator who tried to convince the suspect to come down.
Then, the man arrived at the rooftop of 83-year-old Wilford Burgess.
Burgess climbed a ladder to the roof, and pushed the man off and into the custody of police.
