SC: Armed 70-Year-Old Stops Theft of Truck
According to the incident report, Seawright grabbed firewood and a piece of concrete to break open the steering column on the truck.
Seawright was able to successfully hot-wire the vehicle and start pulling out of the driveway.
“He was frantic when he saw me coming,” said Duroy.
That’s because the 70-year-old didn’t come alone. He also brought his revolver.
“I stopped about 20 feet away and drew down on him.” Duroy said Seawright immediately gave up and dropped to his knees.
“He was almost hyperventilating,” he said.
That’s when the blue-eyed grandpa’s fear turned to compassion.
