Deputies found the shooting took place at a residence where the homeowner had listed items for sale on Craigslist. The homeowner said two Hispanic men arrived to look at the items, then produced a gun, tied up the homeowner and robbed him, the sheriff's office said.
The two men then left the home, with one man attempting to steal the homeowner's vehicle and the other suspect in a 1990s gold Mustang.
The homeowner was able to free himself and confront the suspects outside, firing several shots at them in front of the house.

His lawyer might start opening statements off with something like...
Dear International Divorce Court, wait... that isn't right.
Ahh, anyway you know what I'm trying to say. Unless the story isn't reporting someone we should all know I don't even know why they are charging him, unless the are following the letter of the law.

Even though I think this man should not be charged and deserves a pat on the back, I can't see him getting out of being charged. I'd hope it would end with some kind of greatly reduced charge resulting in no jail time.
The bad guys were already leaving and the threat had passed. All he had to do was nothing other than call the police as he was safe. That's the only thing the law will see and it is a fact.
Lets hope they find a way to at least make the charge a minor one that won't disrupt his life or take his freedom.

The article didn't state which man had the gun. If the guy taking his car did, he might have pointed it at the home owner which could be meaningful.
