Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

LAKE WORTH, FL (WFLX) - A 91-year-old war veteran getting a lot of attention across the nation for defending his property in the buff.

He went outside with a gun after a burglar. The suspected burglar, 26-year-old Jose Pascual, was found drunk and trembling in Robert Thompson's backyard by police.

Guess Pascual didn't know Thompson is a World War II Veteran who went after the noise outside with his weapon and his rottweiler, Rett, and no clothes on.

He fired a shot to scare the burglar in his tracks.

Pascual remains behind bars on a $10,000 bond.
