POCATELLO, Idaho — A court in Idaho says a man in Pocatello acted in self-defense last year when his neighbor burst through his apartment door, and went after him with a machete.

The man kicking down the door was Twain Thomas.

His neighbor, James Svengros, turned on his video camera when he heard a commotion out in the hallway.

The camera recorded the break-in, and the shots from James’ gun that disabled his attacker.

Twain Thomas’ defense lawyer said his client suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder.

A judge ordered Thomas to serve up to 15 years in prison.
