NASHVILLE, TN Tuesday Jul.17.2007 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- Blake Shelton was visiting his mother's house in Ada, Oklahoma recently when her brother, Dempsey Byrd, called her house to say a strange man had broken into his residence. Black and his mother headed to the house to help out. When they got there Blake saw a large man inside but Dempsey wasn't in sight. Blake knocked on the door, and the apparently drunken burglar opened the door. Blake told him to come out of the house onto the porch where he he kept the guy at bay until police arrived and arrested him. James Robert Gastineau was arrested and charged with first degree burglary and public intoxication. And, Dempsey? ˇ§He wasnˇ¦t even in the house anymore,ˇ¨ Blake's mom said. ˇ§He had gone over to the house next door and called us. Thatˇ¦s when we called the police and they came and took that man (Gastineau) into custody.ˇ¨
