On this edition of Hero of the Day, Cam Edwards shares a story from Amherst, New Hampshire where newly elected State Representative Peter T. Hansen, 67, held home intruder Eldon Spikes, 20, at gunpoint in Hansen's home until police arrived. Spikes is a key witness in a murder trial following a recent, violent home invasion in Mount Vernon. He broke into Hansen's house late at night apparently high on drugs. Hansen retrieved his gun to take control of the situation, and Spikes has now been charged with criminal mischief and trespassing. Originally aired 1/7/2011.
