W. Mich. woman turns the tables on would-be home invader

    The woman tells us when the man entered her home, he found himself staring down the barrel of a shotgun.

    28 year old William Brewer was arraigned Monday on felony charges of breaking and entering and assault.

    Borsodi held the suspect at gunpoint till police arrived.

    "Their actions protected them, and also helped us in apprehending the suspect," said Tommy Simpson, with Bangor Police.

    Brewer is being held on $75,000 bond.
