Former professional wrestler and WWE legend ‘Hacksaw’ Jim Duggan recounts the home intruder incident at his South Carolina residence that dominated the news this week.
After Duggan and his wife, Debra, heard commotion in their neighborhood that they believed could be related to the man in their home, they turned their Christmas lights off and told the frightened man to be quiet, after the latter reportedly told the couple that people were after him to kill him.
Duggan said he kept his hand on the intruder’s back and had his weapon ready for protection until the police arrived. It turns out that the intruder was reportedly fleeing from a group of individuals involved in a “separate legal matter” and had been pounding on “multiple doors” nearby before finding Duggan’s door unlocked, per Wrestling Inc.
Duggan said he let Kershaw County Sheriff’s Department handle the matter, expressing that he did not want to press charges.
“Thank God we didn’t shoot him,” Duggan told the outlet of the startling event, which he also addressed on Instagram.
