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.
