GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- A Gainesville man's lack of sight didn't stop him from defending his home from an intruder.

According to police, Cevaughn Curtis Jr., 28, broke into Arthur Williams' house in Gainesville at around 3 a.m.

Curtis, police said, knocked on the door, asked to be let inside but Williams refused. Curtis then tried to force his way into the home.

The 75-year-old retired taxi dispatcher, who's been legally blind for the past 61 years, opened fire on the would-be-thief who kicked down his door, police said.

Police said Williams shot Curtis, who tried to flee but collapsed on the front porch, inthe left side of the neck. He was taken to a hospital in stable condition.

Police said Curtis was charged with burglary of an occupied residence and battery on a person over the age of 65.

Officials are praising Williams for protecting himself.

Good job shooting the dude in the neck and all that, but...how fucking lax are Florida's gun laws that someone who's been blind since Truman was president can own one?

Who cares that the man can't see. Are you saying that because he's got very poor eyesight (legally blind doesn't mean you have absolute zero sight) can't defend themselves with a firearm?

Kudos for the old fella for taking down a dumb fuck. I'm glad he stood his ground and was able to make a decent shot. Neck shots are nasty and it doesn't suprise me that the nagger collapsed 0n the porch(monkey). He lost too much blood :)
