    By The Associated Press

    PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - David Lee Roth got an unwanted visitor when a man being chased by police climbed over a fence and tried to hide in the rock star's yard.

    The former Van Halen frontman's publicist said Roth used a shotgun to hold the man at bay until police arrived, but police spokeswoman Janet Pope could not confirm that Wednesday.

    "He was laying on the grass when our officers arrived," Pope said of the man arrested.

    She said Charles Cooley, 47, was being pursued by officers responding to complaints of someone throwing rocks at windows around 2 a.m. Saturday. He was arrested for investigation of amphetamine possession.

    Roth publicist Lathum Nelson said the singer stood on his second-floor balcony and pointed a shotgun on the intruder until officers arrived.

    "Dave cornered the guy with his shotgun. ... When the cops got there, he put the gun away," Nelson said Wednesday.

    Good for Dave.

    Hey if David Lee Roth pointed a gun at me I sure as heck would be as non confrontational as possible because who knows what the drugs are telling his eyes.:rolleyes:

    Actually good on Dave. Seems like he handled it very well.

    He was on Bob and Tom (radio show, for those who didn't know) talking about "martial arts".
    As best as I can remember, the quote went something like this:
    "You guys go ahead and give peace a chance. We'll cover you when things go bad."

    It's hard to argue with a shotgun.

    Do you think

    that guy would have been a more responsible citizen that day if he knew David Lee Roth would be holding him at shotgun point at day's end?

    Yow.

    What a story for the (delinquent) grandkids.

    He should have followed the boomstick with Van Halen songs from a boombox. Or would that be cruel and unusual punishment? :D

    DLR was busted for drug possession in New York City some time ago. Is he not a prohibited posessor?

    Sorry man, that's an Aerosmith song. But supposedly Steve Tyler is a gun guy, too.
