A Vanderbilt University student has been arrested and charged with attempted aggravated burglary for trying to break into a Nashville house before being chased off by the resident, who had a gun. 

Kyle D. Kessler allegedly attempted first to break through the front door, according to a court-issued warrant. After the resident hollered for him to leave, Kessler allegedly moved to a side door, where he tried and failed again. The resident then brandished a gun, and Kessler moved to the back door, still trying to enter. 

When Kessler returned to the front door, the resident fired two shots into the air. Kessler fled on foot but was picked up by police. 

He posted bond on Feb. 6 and will face a felony charge of attempted aggravated burglary.

Hollered for him to leave? Really?

ROFLMMFAOB!!!!! good one, Beavis3. Your point was obviously, "Really?? Was this article written by a Kentucky basketball fan?? "

Anyway, I happen to have some information on this Vandy student. He happened to have attented a Belmont University party and got coked out of his mind. Upon leaving the house party he got so coked out that he had an quasi externo hallucination, He was about as useful at that point as the coked out Mission Control for the 1985 Challenger Shuttle launch. He got so high he believed he was a University of Tenn athlete. At that point he immediately tried to break into a nearest house.

But the resident was a true g and had an m so he cocked the hammer and blasted a couple caps. Poor kid. I hope he can get his life together.

BEOWULF: POOR KID? He's lucky ! The only thing POOR about him is his judgement. If he'd broken into the house, he'd have an eternity to reflect on his POOR behavior.

The Vandy police on duty were all over at Greek Row dodging furniture flying from the windows...

Hey fightcrib way to go 'blasting' mission control over the loss of 7 American heros. I mean, I think you are spot on in your analysis, he clearly got coked out of his mind and started twitching like a crystal meth tweaker then imagined he was a UT athlete and behaved accordingly.

Artsmart, you're not very streetsmart, are you? This kid was clearly coked and tweaked out of his mind from that high-grade Belmont blow. HE THOUGHT HE WENT TO UT AND PLAYED BASKETBALL FOR THEM.

Fightcrib don't you know they use rocket fuel mon the space shuttle? Not like liquid hydrogen and oxygen, I mean pure columbian rocket fuel. So I seriously doubt they would have beers on board. If they got drunk then they might spill their rocket fuel all over the space shuttle and then when they hit zero gravity it would be everywhere and clog up the instruments and stuff. Besides, they don't need money in space, so what would they use, a straw? YOU CANT HAVE STRAWS IN SPACE BECAUSE IT COULD POKE SOMEONE IN THE EYE.

Ha, no you got it all wrong. You can't have straws in space in the 80s cuz mission control would steal all the straws from the shuttle to snort their coke.

By: dangerlover on 2/12/10 at 4:28

Where do you get this stuff? You are so completely wrong. In the 80's there was an oil embargo so there was no petroleum to make plastic straws so everyone had to use metal straws WHICH ARE WAAAAAAY TOO HEAVY TO TAKE ON THE SHUTTLE SO THAT IS WHY THEY TOOK THEM. moron.

dude, who did YOU learn your history from Chris Mccaliff?? Belmont???? (ha!!!)

By: dangerlover on 2/12/10 at 4:30

No. Your mom .

By: dangerlover on 2/12/10 at 4:50

And Christa MccaLiff looked hot in a space suit AND YOU KNOW IT. The fact is that history is written by people who don't look good in spacepants. You should know as well though that it has been proven that the Challenger disaster was caused by a faulty o-ring made in Kentucky that was installed by mechanics who were watching a Kentucky basketball game at the time.

I can't argue with that.
