Millionaire points gun at burglar who broke into his home – but cops arrest HIM because weapon was unlicensed
- George Bardwil, 60, pointed loaded .40cal Sig Sauer at intruder
- His defense lawyer says gun was registered to Bardwil’s bodyguard
A millionaire businessman who threatened a burglar inside his home with a gun is facing three years in jail because he did not have a license for the weapon.
George Bardwil, who owns linen company Bardwil Home, was at home in his E. 51st Street apartment in Manhattan in January, when a man broke in.
Bardwil, 60, brandished the gun at the intruder, who then fled, and the businessman called 911.
But when he showed police footage of the incident recorded on his home security system he was arrested on suspicion of possessing an illegal gun.
