A man breaks into a house that is not his.

Owners come home while he is in the house taking a shower.

Man gets scared because he thinks owners have guns.

Man locks self in bathroom and calls police on self.

From CNN:

A man who broke into a house in Portland, Oregon, called police -- afraid the homeowner may have a gun.

The suspect, Timothy James Chapek, was in the bathroom taking a shower when the homeowner returned to the house Monday night, Portland police said in a statement.

Chapek locked himself in the bathroom and made an emergency call, police said. He said he had broken into the house, the owner had come home, and that he was concerned the owner might have a gun.

Moral of the story: Potential that owners of a home have a gun deters criminals, lands them in jail.
