A householder and his wife have been arrested in Leicestershire after two suspected burglars were hit with shotgun pellets.
The wounded men and two others have also been arrested.
They are no doubt awaiting word on their award from The Crown when it’s discovered they’re too disabled to stand in the dole queue.
Police said they were alerted by the householder on Sunday , who said a group of men had broken into his home in Welby, Melton Mowbray, and he had fired a legally held shotgun.
Well see, that’s the first problem, you’re legally only allowed to HOLD the damn thing, no one gave you permission to pull the trigger.
One of the suspected raiders called an ambulance. Another went to hospital.
Their injuries are not regarded as life-threatening, police said.
That’s the second problem. Next time make sure there’s only one side to the story, Mr. Mowbray.
Officers said a man aged 35 and his wife aged 43 had been arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm.
BEND OVER AND THINK OF HER MAJESTY, PEASANT.
