Stephen Trevor Chapman, a 22-year-old Arizona man, has been arrested after he was shot by a furious husband who found him in bed with his wife.
The husband is 68. The wife is 63. He reportedly discovered her sleeping with Chapman when he went to check on his wife about 1 a.m. on Saturday.
The elderly man, who suffers from Parkinson's Disease, says he fell asleep inside his home in the retiree community of Saddlebrooke, Ariz., near Tuscon.
When he went to his guesthouse to check on his wife, he found her and Chapman together, police say, and began to poke Chapman with his cane.
Chapman allegedly bounded out of bed and lunged at the man, screamed at him and refused to leave, at which point the homeowner fired a warning shot.
One pellet from the .410-caliber pistol shot struck Chapman in the hand, and the confused homeowner proceeded to make the saddest 911 call ever.
In a recording of the elderly man's 911 call, he can be heard arguing with his wife in the background. "Don't you be sleeping with him!" he tells her.
He then explains to the police dispatcher that Chapman was just released from jail and that his wife had been trying to help him get back on his feet.
"My wife befriended him. She's trying to take care of him," he said.
Moments later, he said that Chapman and the man's wife were attempting to leave in her silver Mazda Miata. Police arrived and found him still there.
They arrested the 22-year-old for disorderly conduct.
"This was an unusual call for our deputies in an active senior community," Sheriff Paul Babeu told the Arizona Daily Star in the understatement of all time.
"Clearly, this young man should have heeded the warnings of the homeowner to leave his residence and to stop sleeping with his wife," he added.
The young man, who suffered a minor injury from the shooting, "is lucky that he only got poked with a cane and hit with a stray pellet from the shotgun."
