LEXINGTON, N. C. – Authorities say that a NASCAR team owner shot at three people who broke into his North Carolina home.
News outlets report Davidson County Sheriff David Grice says no one was injured and nothing was taken from the house of Richard childress on Sunday night.
Childress on is CEO and chairman of Richard childress on Racing and a former NASCAR driver.
The sheriff’s office says that the three intruders had their faces covered and seemed to be enabled. They broke a window next to a door knob, the activation of an alarm.
Childress on who was at home with his wife, grabbed his gun and shot at the intruders, who fled.
Grice says that it is unclear whether childress on was specifically targeted. He says that the North Carolina Castle Doctrine permits people to defend themselves against this form of intrusion.
