Tennant watches Home Alone/MacGyver too much!

12 01 2009

I always find it amusing when someone tries to emulate Home Alone/MacGyver style traps and doesn’t bother to think of the consequences. In the case of one man in the Bay Shore area of New York I think he’s taken is a bit to far.

The man was arrested for almost killing another man with a booby trap in his home to keep intruders out.

The trap was to protect himself from squatters that lived in the building, but for some reason he didn’t put the trap away for a technician that was scheduled to come to the apartment.

The landlord warned the tennant of the mantanance and told him the work was necessary. Luckily, the technician never faced the trap because the landlord entered the apartment before him to make sure it was safe. When the landlord tried to open the door he noticed some sort of contraption set up behind it, making it hard for him to fully open it.

Thankfully, he was cautious and checked to see if there was anything worth noticing. You can imagine his surprise when he saw the vietnam war style punji trap with a huge knife above him!

*Note to self … “disable home-made traps for repairmen”
