Virginia man holds goat thief at bay at gunpoint

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (AP) — He tried to get a man’s goat — literally — but got arrested, instead. Authorities in Stafford County, Virginia say they got a call from a property owner who spotted a thief on his land — and was holding him at gunpoint. The farmer says his wife went outside and found someone had let the goats out of their pen. The farmer tracked the suspect down and found he had three goats tied up near his truck. The farmer says the man seemed drunk. But a breathalyzer test showed he was only pretending to be impaired. The suspect faces a series of charges, including larceny of animals.
