We’ve heard that wine is good for your health, and this was certainly true when a District of Columbia home invasion was turned around with a glass of wine.
It started around midnight on June 16 when a group of friends was finishing dinner on the patio of a District of Columbia home, authorities and witnesses said. That’s when a hooded man slid through an open gate and pointed a handgun at the girl’s head.
“Give me your money, or I’ll start shooting,” he said, the witnesses told The Washington Post.
Everyone froze, they said, but then one guest spoke up.
“We were just finishing dinner,” Cristina Rowan, 43, told the man. “Why don’t you have a glass of wine with us?”
The intruder had a sip of their Chateau Malescot St-Exupery and said, “Damn, that’s good wine.” (Full Story)
The robber drank some more wine, had a bite of Camembert, and put his gun in his pants. He then apologized, requested a hug, and left. The group locked the door and dialed 911.
Who needs an expensive security system – instead, just have a nice glass of wine at the ready!
