Herron Fights Off Home Intruders

Green Bay – – Remember how Sean Taylor died?

Last Friday night Packers running back Noah Herron says he heard the sound of breaking glass.

It was after 11p.m.

Suspecting a home invasion, Herron unscrewed a bedpost and headed down the stairs of his Village of Howard, WI. home, a 10 – minute drive north of Lambeau Field.

In the dark, Herron confronted a number of burglars, striking one of them with the bedpost. Brown County Sheriff's deputies say they found a stolen vehicle and other belongings not far from the home, perhaps from other break-ins.

Brown County Sheriff Dennis Kocken released a statement saying Herron acted in self-defense. 

"Noah Herron used necessary, reasonable and justifiable force in protecting his life and property," said the sheriff.

An investigation continues. Authorities think it was a random attack, that the intruders did not know that they were breaking in to Herron's home. One of them won't soon forget he tangled with a Packer.

Although no charges have been filed yet, one suspect is still hospitalized. Another is behind bars at the Brown County jail in downtown Green Bay, being held on unrelated warrants and for violation of probation.  Authorities say the two suspects are being questioned for a number of other home invasions and break-ins in the Green Bay area.

Washington Redskins Safety, Sean Taylor, died after being shot during a home invasion in Miami last November. His last two interceptions were against Brett Favre at Lambeau Field. Taylor was 24 – years – old. Four suspects go on trial in August.
