SOUTH FAIRMOUNT – A 30-year-old man was arrested and charged with burglary Thursday after the female homeowner chased him out of her house and then held him down until police arrived.
Lonnie Lane, who has no home according to court records, had visible head injuries during his arraignment in Hamilton County Municipal Court. He had white bandages wrapped around his head.
Lane's lawyer, Dan Reif, said his client thought the home in the 1600 block of Waverly Avenue was vacant.
"He's already been punished,'' said Reif, referring to the injuries. (Oh yeah? I think not!)
Hamilton County Municipal Judge Richard Bernat set bond for Lane at $25,000.
Some information that did not get included in the Enquirers story was that the lady that owned the home had been a victim recently of a home robbery.
She was not taking this crap again. After beating this guy senseless she held him down until police arrived and she stayed until he got medical attention.
This lady deserves a commendation.
