PORTAGE, Ind. (WLS) - Carlos Rodriquez thought he was home, he later told police, but the apartment door wouldn’t open. So he kicked it in.

He was greeted by a woman with a gun, and he obeyed her order to lie on the ground until police arrived.

The 28-year-old woman and her 31-year-old husband, who live in an apartment with the same number as Rodriguez’s but in a different building in the same block, the 5900 block of Old Porter Road, told police they woke at about 3:30 a.m. Monday to banging on the door.

When the door crashed open, they left their bedroom to see an unknown man walking toward their living room TV.

The woman immediately told Rodriguez she was calling 911, and he headed back toward the door. Instead, she said she had a gun and ordered him to lie on the ground. He was still there, and the gun was sitting on the coffee table, when police arrived, according to the arrest report.

Rodriguez, whose blood-alcohol level was 0.21 percent, was arrested for felony residential entry and criminal mischief.

She was armed and she got the drop on him.

Remember, you don't have to pull the trigger to get compliance ~ and the guy might just be a drunk who thinks he's home.
