A burglar stormed into “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan’s home on Thursday, forcing him to engage in a horrific real-life conflict.
The 68-year-old former WWE employee claimed in an interview with Wrestling Inc. that a man in his mid-20s broke into his South Carolina house at roughly 6:45 p.m. the day before. Duggan claimed that after tackling the intruder to the ground, he took his.44 caliber revolver and held the man at gunpoint.
Duggan and his wife, Debra, switched off their Christmas lights and instructed the frightened man to keep quiet when they heard activity in their neighborhood that they thought might be connected to the man inside their home. The man had reportedly warned the couple that people were chasing him to kill him.
Until the cops showed up, according to Duggan, he kept his hand on the intruder’s back and was prepared to defend himself with his pistol. According to Wrestling Inc., the burglar was apparently running from a group of people involved in a “different legal case” and had been banging on “several doors” close by until discovering Duggan’s door was unlocked.
Duggan claimed he did not want to file charges and instead let the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Department handle the situation.
The shocking incident, which Duggan also discussed on Instagram, was described by him as “Thank God we didn’t shoot him.”
