A rich Englishman could be sentenced to prison after shooting an "annoying" burglar alarm at a neighbors home. This happened at Saint Johns Woods, one of Englands most affluent neighborhoods. He owns a home worth 10 million pounds there. Peter Shalson, one of Britains wealthiest men, worth 175 million pounds, broke into a neighbors home and blasted their annoying burglar alarm with his shotgun. Being rich obviously doesnt make one smart though. But it does get you a trophy wife.
He pled guilty to...

If you break into a neighbor’s house and use a shotgun to cause damage to their possessions ... well, you might be mentally unstable.
There’s a local AM station antenna field and transmitter shack about a half mile distant from me. One year when the station was in receivership their damn shrieking alarm wailed for almost a week straight. Well, maybe three-four solid days. Seems longer. I can understand the sentiment of the man with the shotgun.
If I bought a house at that price, I would have enough distance from neighbors and their annoying alarms
Yah... I can sympathize. Haven’t we all had that neighbor with a #$%@ing car alarm that went off pretty much every morning at 3am?
Reminds me of a friend of mine in Beverly Hills sitting in his backyard with a 410 shotgun dressed in camo, taking shots at a Crane that stood over 4’ tall with a wingspan of about 10-15’ that stole over $100,000 of fish in one week out of his Koi Pond. Laughed my ass off, no the police didn’t do anything and yes they knew about it, He called them and told them what he was going to do, they said stay in the backyard.
Lamentable lack of details...
Did he use a Holland & Holland, Purdey, Boss, or Churchill?
I've heard fire is a good quieting agent for car alarms.
"Ever notice how you come across somebody once in a while you shouldn't have ****** with? That's me."
After hearing about that, I'm not feeling too bad about flushing the $10 Beta that lasted me a month.

Perp and trophy wife
After a couple of weeks of being startled awake each morning, tired of erroneous assumptions that the bird will move on, and in an attempt to keep the bird from doing anymore damage to the siding of his beautiful home in a million dollar-plus gated community, Billy decided to get his hunting gear on, grabbed his son's pellet rifle and hit the woods in his backyard to wait for the little bugger to show up.
The next morning at around 4:30, as he rested motionless, sitting against a tree, Billy heard the sound of a couple of car doors closing, followed by the unmistakable chirp of a police radio. He looked up to see flashlights whipping around his yard as two officers, guns drawn, began making their way down either side of his house into his back yard...
Too funny, the look on that good 'ol boy's face when he was telling this story was priceless, the next time, Billy will remember to alert his elderly neighbor, Miss Charlotte, to his plans before he sets out to bag his woodpecker. ;-)
Trophy chest and a butter face. And why does her face look so much like his?
If I had $300 million bucks like that guy, I'd have a luxurious castle atop a formidable granite spire so far out in the wilderness that the landscape probably doesn't even appear on USGS satellite maps. I'd just have supplies flown in by helicopter when I needed it.
I even have some likely candidate properties in mind in Nevada, Idaho, and Wyoming.
A third of a billion dollars, and I could live the rest of my life making Lex Luthor look like a pauper.
True. A noisy burglar alarm is legally a nuisance, and its owner can be prosecuted accordingly. But if you break into his house to destroy it, you are guilty of criminal trespass, breaking and entering, and destruction of private property. At least.
