HELL YEAH! Homeowner holds escaped inmates at gunpoint till feds arrive


Thursday, A Tennessee homeowner took matters into his own hands, and held two escaped inmates wanted in the killing of two prison guards at gunpoint until authorities arrived.

Tennessee Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. Bill Miller said late Thursday the homeowner caught these two pieces of scum in our society: Donnie Rowe and Ricky Dubose trying to steal his car.


Miller says the escaped Georgia inmates crashed a car they stole as they were chased by law enforcement, then took off running into woods along Interstate 24 near the rural community of Christiana.

Miller says something alerted that homeowner that these two were outside his house. It was then, he saw the two trying to steal his car. The trooper says the homeowner held the two at gunpoint with a neighbor, and then called the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Department, and waited for them to arrive and arrest them.

Rowe and Dubose are accused of killing two guards on a prison transfer bus Tuesday, and their escape had a $130,000 reward for information leading to their arrests.

The search involved law enforcement officers all over Georgia, the FBI, the U.S. Marshals Service, and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Governor Nathan Deal released a statement:

“Rest assured, justice will be served. My sincere thanks to our local, state and federal law enforcement officers who assisted in the manhunt. Because of their tireless efforts, the public is safe.”
