A Lawrenceville man felt his arrest was straight out of a popular television show.

Early on the morning of Friday, January 17, Gwinnett County police were called to a home on Buttercup Court in unincorporated Lawrenceville. The resident told police a man, later identified as Alan Davis Young took out the air conditioning unit and climbed through a back window. He then reportedly went into the victim's bedroom and woke him up by demanding rent money. The resident yelled back at

Young then went down stairs and rifled through the refrigerator. He demanded the victim give him not only his wallet, but also some alcohol and strawberries.

The suspect then left out of the same window he came in through.

Police arrived on the scene and saw Young running to a shed in the back yard. He then tried to climb a fence, but fell to the ground.

An officer ordered Young to stop and shot him with a taser. He missed and fired again. Young fell to the ground and tried to remove the taser probes and the officer cycled the taser again.

Officers handcuffed Young, who's mood switched from panicked to jovial and back.

"Don't let the snakes get me!" Young said to the officers. He also asked them not to cut off his privates and told them "this is like 'Breaking Bad'."

Young admitted to the officers that he had used meth.

He was arrested and charged with burglary and obstruction of a police officer.

Ummm, did anyone bother to edit this story? "The resident yelled at Young and then went downstairs and rifled through the refrigerator..." Well, I suppose if someone breaks into your house you could conceivably rifle through your own refrigerator, but shouldn't you call the cops, instead? After all, you DID yell at the burglar... but maybe you were really hungry and wanted to eat something first... please, someone, why won't you hire ME to proofread and help edit your stories? You really, really need someone and here I am, ready to work...
