CUMMING, Ga. — A cab driver using the restroom was confused with an intruder.

On June 27, a man in the 4000 block of Widgeon Way told deputies he found an intruder using his bathroom, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report

The man said he called 911 after pointing his “personal handgun” at the intruder, because he did not know why he was in his home.

The intruded turned out to be a cab driver.

He told deputies he has driven the man’s roommate to-and-from the home on many occasions. This time, the cab driver asked the roommate if he could use her bathroom.

She let him in the house, but the male roommate did not know.

The man heard someone in the bathroom and when he found out it was not his roommate, he grabbed a handgun for protection.

The roommate said this was a misunderstanding between parties, and no charges were pressed.
