Andrew Myers is a veteran of the 82nd Airborne Division of the United States Army, and he has a hell of a story to tell about this past weekend. It all started on Veterans Day when a man broke into his Seattle home and spent the night inside, perhaps to escape the cold and get high, according to Myers. The following day, he made some security camera improvements to his property in preparation for the man’s return.
Two nights later, he came back. Myers was ready, and so were his security cameras. We missed an uppercut, but other than that, the entire thing was captured on tape.
Myers explains, via YouTube:
The following is what takes place when a local creeper attempts a home invasion on a veteran of the 82nd Airborne. This guy was in my house earlier this week in the middle of the night on Veteran’s Day. My neighbor saw him and when we checked the security cameras sure enough, there he was. He got away with it once, but since then I have installed some security improvements to alert me to movement in my fence line.
That night somehow my door was unlocked he actually made it inside (to shoot up I’m guessing) all night where it is warm I presume. Then, he left in the morning. In the area of my home he was in I keep some very expensive camera gear for my business. I had a feeling that now that this guy knew that stuff was down there that he would be back. I had a plan, that didn’t work because I expected him to head back along the trail – instead he went around the other side of my house.
….Now I am thinking: “he just made his way around my house to attempt to gain entry upstairs (where my GF and dog are), WTF??”. – Once I told him he wasn’t coming in, and wasn’t leaving till he talked to the police he struggled to get away and tried to pull off a huge haymaker on the porch. He ate an uppercut for his troubles,(off camera) and he was just about “out” on the porch already but I realized I wanted anything that happened to be on camera so I drug him down the stairs. The rest can be seen on camera…
Kudos to the Seattle police as they were here instantly and treated everyone involved with what seemed like “protection” and “service” – not a huge fan of cops but these guys were GREAT! The police report states: “assailant attempted an assault to break free. He lost.”

You know you’re in complete control of a situation like this when you’re of mind to relocate the fight so that it’s all caught on camera. Fine work..
