DAVID LEE ROTH Apprehends Knife-Wielding Intruder At Gunpoint!

April 30, 2003

This past weekend, David Lee Roth apprehended and detained a knife-wielding man who trespassed on the singer's Southern California estate.

At 3:00 AM on Saturday April 26, the former VAN HALEN frontman was awakened by the sounds of breaking branches to discover a man had scaled his manor's 10-foot high wall. Roth grabbed his shotgun and went onto the grounds where he encountered the man who was carrying a knife.

Roth cornered the man and held him until the Pasadena Police arrived to take him away in handcuffs. Says Roth: "Anyone found bearing arms here at night ... will be found here in the morning."

Roth was home preparing for a summer tour in support of his forthcoming release, "Diamond Dave" (due July 8 on Magna Carta Records).
