    David Lee Roth Detains Unwanted Visitor

    PASADENA, Calif. - David Lee Roth (news) got an unwanted visitor when a man being chased by police climbed over a fence and tried to hide in the rock star's yard.

    The former Van Halen frontman's publicist said Roth used a shotgun to hold the man at bay until police arrived, but police spokeswoman Janet Pope could not confirm that Wednesday.

    "He was laying on the grass when our officers arrived," Pope said of the man arrested.

    She said Charles Cooley, 47, was being pursued by officers responding to complaints of someone throwing rocks at windows around 2 a.m. Saturday. He was arrested for investigation of amphetamine possession.

    Roth publicist Lathum Nelson said the singer stood on his second-floor balcony and pointed a shotgun on the intruder until officers arrived.

    "Dave cornered the guy with his shotgun. ... When the cops got there, he put the gun away," Nelson said Wednesday.

  2. Ahhh the internet. Purveyor of tasteless news, oddities of humanity and harbringer of the apocalypse.

    I wonder if they would have written that story if it had just been a regular person.

    I can imagine Dave pumpin' rounds out in a rage and saying to himself "I was the BEST SINGER they ever HAD, damnit! Damn Hagar didn't even KNOW how to DRESS!!" and so on...just taking out years of pent up rage. :D

  5. DLR Movie Scene #36--An Intruder

    PERP: "Who are you?"
    DLR: "I'm your ice cream man, baby."

    DLR chambers round in shotgun, and dispatches PERP with authoritative blast, flollowed by requisite jumping scissor kick.

    hey, if Dave is supposed to be all this martial-arts stud, why did he need a shotgun? Not like I am disapproving of the choice, but I am fat and slow... a shotgun is a great equalizer... But Dave?
