Man Catches Heathen Burglar In His House and Beats The ..
When Caleb Clark entered 4761 Hilda Drive* he thought that that it would be like any another score. Clark would help himself to the homeowner's property and no one would be the wiser. Instead Caleb ended up in the hospital, getting his head stapled back together. Despite having already left for work, the Army-veteran man of the house decided to swing back and briefly check on things. And when he returned to find Caleb Clark in his living room, it was on. Clark attempted to flee, but took off in the direction of a closed door. The homeowner quickly closed the distance and opened up a Costco-size can of whoopass on Clark, eventually pinning him to the floor and calling 911.
Caleb R. Clark, 19 and no stranger to the criminal justice system, had to have his head stapled closed, after which he was booked on two third-degree felony charges — one each of residential burglary and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. (Caleb had cut the homeowner with a piece of glass.)
Clark also had three outstanding felony warrants for his arrest: two for violating terms of his release and one for failure to appear... for a residential burglary he allegedly committed back in January 2019. He won't be getting out any time soon.

*I appreciate your concern for the homeowner’s privacy. In fact, I share it. Prior to publishing this video we verified that the homeowner and his family had long-since moved from the incident house. Had that not been the case, or had we been unable to confirm it, their address would not have appeared in the video or description.

About the blurring in this video:
New Mexico's access to public records statute is the Inspection of Public Records Act — "IPRA" for short. As in most states, there exists a general presumption that New Mexico government records are public, but that presumption can be overcome if a record meets the criteria of one or more exemptions. In most states there are many dozens, even hundreds, of exemptions. New Mexico has only seven core exemptions. That said, they are quite broad, and first among the group is an exemption for "Records pertaining to physical or mental examinations and medical treatment of persons confined to any institution," found at NMSA 1978 § 14-2-1-A (1).
Despite the fact that exemptions are supposed to be narrowly construed, and the fact that "confined to any institution" is unambiguous, in 1977 the New Mexico Supreme Court ruled that the medical records exemption applied to all records kept by any governmental agency relating to physical or mental illness or medical treatment... and not just to records of persons confined to institutions. See State ex rel. Newsome v. Alarid, 90 N.M. 790, 568 P. 2d 1236 (1977).
The City of Las Cruces applies that exemption by blurring anything resembling a medical intervention. Rectangular-shaped blurring in this video has been applied by the City of Las Cruces. All other blurring is from us, and is typically present to protect the someone's personal privacy.
