NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Metro Police responded to a call on Robinson Road after getting a call from Lana Robinson, late Judge Gale Robinson's wife. In the call she stated that a man was attempting to break into her home.
Robinson said she woke up to what she thought was her cat making noise but when she looked at surveillance video she saw a man trying to break in through the main door.
"I saw this person on the porch," said Robinson, who remained on the phone while police were en route.
The suspect 22-year-old Michael Moss can be seen in surveillance video forcibly trying to open the door.
He tried to break a small window with a rock and when that doesn't work he picked up a wrought iron chair.
"They belong to my dearly departed husband's mother," said Robinson.
Moss broke the feet to the chair before taking off into the night.
Police said he ran to the nearby McDonald's and tried to enter the business but employees refused to let him inside since they were closed.
Authorities said Moss then went to the middle of the road and flagged down a police officer who ended up arresting him.
He was charged with attempted aggravated burglary.
