    His wife saw the alleged burglar, 18-year-old Jonathan Parker, attempting to break in to his Tulsa Fire Department SUV. 

    There, Morgans held him at gunpoint until police arrived. He said Parker begged him to let him go. 

    "He said a lot of stuff, none of which we can say on TV," Morgans said. "He was a little shooken up, but mostly because I had pulled a gun on him."
