Not really a burglar it seems that this was a neighbourhood dispute, which the douchebag above decided to settle by getting drunk and threatening his neighbour with a knife.

Fortunately his 72 year-old neighbour was a former boxer, who dodged the knife and then floored the douche with a right-hand. He then dragged the douche outside and "subdued" him with punches. The police were called and the douchebag is now serving 4 years in prison.

Nominated for the next badass of the month:

That's one hell of a beating.

I'm going to hold off on a BAoM nomination, though. I have a better one (http://www.nydailynews.com/ny_local/2009/06/09/2009-06-09_school_superintendent_wrestles_to_the_ground_di sarms_gunman_at_south_orangtown_m.html) (although I'm not sure where to post it, since it's not really MA related but it's badass as all hell).

Actually, it's a common misconception that burglary means breaking in with the intention of stealing something. Not in every jurisdiction, but it often means breaking in with the intention of committing a crime. As Gregory McCalium was convicted of aggravated burglary, I think it's fair to call him a burglar.

Seconded. The BotM. And the description of burglary; entering someone's home without consent with the intent to commit a crime*

* a long list goes here

I stand corrected.

I thought this was going to be a necro post, from the last time an elderly boxer beat up a burglar. I've said it before and I'll probably say it again. The oldschoolers are badasses.
