Yeah, I know it isn’t politics but sometimes we need a break from that, right?

OKLAHOMA CITY – A suspected house burglar was left bloodied and beaten after a fist-fight with the homeowner.

Oklahoma City Police arrested Jonathan Wise, 19, for burglary.

When officers took him into custody, Wise had two black eyes and needed stitches.

Norm Houston, the homeowner, told police he found Wise inside his garage.


According to Oklahoma City Police, that’s when Wise attacked Houston.

“The burglar started out by apologizing to him for getting into the garage and said he had fixed the damage only to follow that up by punching him in the face,”OKC Police Master Sgt. Gary Knight said.

Although he didn’t throw the first punch, Houston beat up Wise.

Houston works as a personal trainer and specializes in boxing and kickboxing.

“You know I ain’t the toughest but I can hold my own,” Houston said.

I’ll say. ;)

  2. He’s lucky not to have died from “lead poisoning.”

    It’s a good thing most criminals are morons. Good thing Oklahoma is a red state otherwise the burglar would probably get a good lawyer and sue the homeowner for assault – and win.

    Seems like it wasn’t very ‘wise’ of Mr. Wise. LMAO! WTG Mr. Houston!!!
