Robert ColeTULSA, OK –  A man in Tulsa tackled and hogtied an attempted burglar, then left him in the front yard for police because he had to go to work.

On Wednesday, Denay and her husband heard glass break outside their daughter’s bedroom around 6 a.m. and then heard someone rummaging around inside their garage. Denay’s husband, Willie, waited by the front door and waited for whoever was in the garage to come out.

When 31-year-old Robert Cole emerged from their garage, Denay’s husband bum-rushed him in the front yard and then hogtied him. As soon as Cole was secured, Denay said her husband called police and told her he had to get to work and then left.

“That’s just the type of person he is, you know? That’s just the type of person he is. Business is business. ‘I got to take care of business, he’s safe, the police are coming, I got to go,'” Denay said.

When asked if her husband raised his arms in victory like people who hogtie cattle, which would have been hilarious, Denay said he did something even more awesome.

“He didn’t do that. He was just like (nods head), kind of like the head nod, like, ‘Okay, what’s done is done.'”

When police arrived at the home, the found Cole still tied up in the front yard. He was arrested and charged with first degree burglary. Police say he appeared to be on drugs and believed he was actually in Jenks.

He is being held at the Tulsa County jail in lieu of $32,079 bond.

    He’s the MAN! *applause*

  • Sounds like a sensible guy, except in SA we would have to wait for the police, identify the burglar hogtied on the lawn, and get ourselves arrested for assault. :/

  • Texas Ranger

    I assume this Dildo-Druggie thought that stealing in Jenks was OK? Mr. Houston should have waited till after he got home from work to call the cops.

    Afterwards Willie Denay drove over to Chuk Norris’s house, ripped Chuck’s steaming hot coffee from his hands, then continued on to work.

  • Dudes licked he didn’t get shot when the homeowner came down stairs.

  • JohnQknowitall

    The perfect citizen. I was cringing while reading the hero was going to be arrested for something like leaving the scene…

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    Did Mr. Cole forget to look at the updated “Do NOT Fuck With” list for July, 3rd?

  • Curlykate910

    Meth. Not even once.

  • Helena Philomena Liebekraft

    That’ll teach ’em!

  • He wouldda given ’em a wedgie with ben gay in his underwear, THEN tied ’em up and left – but was running late for work that day.

    I’m kind of worried that after work he may stop off at Daryl Dixon’s house to shoot my Daryl in the ass with his own crossbow. Don’t do it Mr. Denay, don’t do it. You have proven your manhood enough.

    This guy rocks! What if this pig was hoping to find the little girl?

  • I have to say I’m really impressed and very very amused 😀

  • I got shit to do…99 problems and a tweekin’ window breakin’ bitch ain’t one.

  • everjaded

    I was thinking the exact same thing! Waiting for him to get caught up on some ludicrous kidnapping or false imprisonment charges. Nice to see that things actually do work out fairly, at least on occasion.

  • TruTruTrue

    Name a street after him!

  • Curlykate910

    Blasphemy! Denay’s husband’s ear would wind up on a string around Daryl’s neck!

  • Parrot Toes

    True dat.

  • Lisa Rohova

    I can’t get that Salt ‘N’ Pepa song out of my head…
    Takes down an intruder and still makes it to work on time; this is my hero!

  • Parrot Toes

    Oh, and just a little FYI. Two months ago I hugged ‘Daryl’ over 5 times for real. I got his autograph on my arm where it is now permanently tattooed. Be jelly #Reedussluts. 😛

  • sherrdbw

    Ha ha what a fucking dumbass. I wonder if OK has a stand your ground law?

  • tanukichan

    I live about ten minutes (possibly less) from where this occurred. It is my understanding that Oklahoma does have some form of a stand your ground law. Recently a woman in rural Oklahoma shot an intruder while she was home alone with her either infant or toddler in the home with 911 on the phone. See

    I believe it was front paged on DD a while back too.

    Also, one of my dear friends who is trained as a firefighter and EMT had to shoot and kill an intruder. I am certain, if the intruder had not already broken into his elderly neighbor’s home and then bum rushed my friend with a gun, he would have much rather been given the opportunity to restrain him instead of fatally shooting and killing him as the “hero worship” that he received after the incident really messed with his head. And my friend is far from the “bleeding heart liberal” that I am.

    There are many instances of people fatally shooting intruders in Oklaoma. What is refreshing about this story is that no one has to feel responsible for taking another’s life, because I know that even when justified, it still creates emotional turmoil for many. Of course this man took a big risk by restraining the intruder, but I am happy to hear that no one was killed and even more amazing te guy went to work! I am not ashamed to say had that been m, I would have capitalized on it by taking a “mental health day” from work! e is a better person than I!

    Its also refeshing to see the outlaw spirit is still alive in the former Wild Wild West in and that in this case that outlaw attitude was channeled in as positive way as possible in this case, IMHO.

  • IntelligentVirtue

    Ahh, the head nod; requires so little but says so much!

  • sherrdbw

    Was it that young woman whose husband died on Christmas day?

  • Parrot Toes

    I never understood why someone would be upset if they killed someone out of self defense. To me, it’s more than a justified death. Kill or be killed. Then again, it could be my borderline personality and that I generally just don’t give a shit about other people, especially ones who break the law.

  • sugarpie

    **great big smile** that’s awesome!

  • Flomox

    Now watch… some ambulance chaser is going to rep this guy for “unlawful imprisonment” or some stupid shit

  • Buffettgirl

    Awww – look at your d-v stalker love! Because clearly, this deserved a d-v right? 😉

  • Buffettgirl

    Kind of “I got this” macho-sexy eh? 😉

  • Buffettgirl

    This = Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! 😉

  • JohnQknowitall

    d-v? AND why did someone give me a down vote?

  • Buffettgirl

    Well – you figured d-v out on your own now didn’t you? You are officially one of the stalked now… ;-P

  • JohnQknowitall

    Loved or Hated is better than forgotten… 🙂

  • Buffettgirl

    As my Mom says; “It’s better to be talked about than ignored!”

  • JohnQknowitall

    Hmmmm…. depends on whether the topic is execution or maiming or some such painful stuff or not….

  • Tundratot

    Someone just thinks you NEED some dissent in your life or you’d get a swelled head.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Well that show them then: I already have both!

  • sherrdbw

    Please don’t insult pigs. What have they done to you?

  • kimbev69


  • JGo555

    *Points & laughs* HAHA!

  • roffta

    Doesn’t anybody feel this guy is just a wannabe hero? There are so many things that could have gone wrong here. The intruder could have had a knife and freed himself after he was left alone, or an accomplice with a gun could have been waiting in a car…Why didn’t they call the cops when they heard someone in their garage already? They didn’t even know if it was one man or a group.
