Jimmy Lee Garrett, 48, of Alabama is a registered sex offender who has been arrested twice in 1985 for first-degree sodomy and first-degree sexual abuse of a 69-year-old woman. Garrett, apparently not content with the freedom the state so graciously lets him enjoy, decided to break into the home of a neighbor at 4am for unknown reasons. Garret was most recently released from jail on April 21, 2013 according to a report.

When the woman who lives at the home saw Garrett in her kitchen, she yelled for her husband, who grabbed a gun. During a confrontation Garrett was shot once in the foot by the homeowner.

Garrett was transported to a nearby hospital where he was treated for minor injuries. He was arrested by sheriff’s deputies immediately following his treatment and he is being held on a $30,000 bond.

According to authorities there was a child in the home during the course of the incident, but they were unharmed.
