Richard Childress stops attempted robbery at his house.
« on: December 20, 2017, 03:25:39 PM »

Most of you probably don't know who Richard Childress is is but some of you do.  Nascar team owner.  He owns the number 3 Chevy once driven by the late Dale Earnhardt.  He is a avid hunter and sportsman.  Also a big part of the NRA.

DAVIDSON COUNTY, N.C. -- Three masked men attempted to break into the home of NASCAR Legend Richard Childress.
The Davidson County Sheriff’s Office said the men tried to enter Childress’ home Sunday night just before 10:30 p.m. A window was broken beside a door knob on the lower level of the home which activated an alarm.
Investigators said Childress armed himself and fired shots at the three robbery suspects. Sheriff Grice said it does not appear that any of the suspects were injured before getting awaySheriff Grice said due to the NC Castle Doctrine a person has the right to defend themselves against this type of intrusion.
Childress told Grice that he felt, “the only reason he and his wife were here today was because of God and the Second Amendment.
If you have any information call the Sheriff’s Office or Detective Sgt. Marc Hanna at 336-242-2100.
Childress is offering a $10K reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of those involved.

When he was being introduced at the grand opening for the Wonders of Wildlife Museum & Aquarium, they referred to him as VP of the NRA.
I had no idea, but I've always rooted for his drivers (but not quite as much as Hendrick drivers)  :)

I didn't know that either till I heard it on the radio.   I have Sirius/XM and listen to Nascar channel 90 talk radio.

Not news worthy. It happens everyday to thousands of others and it's not reported on the news.
I couldn't care less about what anybody says..............

Does WA have this type of "Castle Doctrine"?

Being that this is Washington, I expect this isn't very cut and dried.
