SANDPOINT, Idaho -- Northern Idaho resident Justin Schuck has sat on the Sandpoint City Council for a little more than two years. But this week, he took his civil service to a new level by sitting on a suspected burglar.
The Bonner County Daily Bee reports that Schuck's wife discovered a man rifling through her car on Tuesday and alerted her husband, who grabbed a shotgun to confront the man. According to a police report, the 31-year-old councilman told the man to get on the ground or risk being shot. After a brief struggle, Schuck subdued the suspected burglar by sitting on him.
Prosecutors have charged 18-year-old Stanley Evan Richardson Jr. with two counts of burglary in connection with the incident. He has not yet entered a plea.
