Millionaire points gun at burglar who broke into his home – but cops arrest HIM because weapon was unlicensed

by Daily Mail  |  published on March 15, 2013

A millionaire businessman who threatened a burglar inside his home with a gun is facing three years in jail because he did not have a license for the weapon.

George Bardwil, who owns linen company Bardwil Home, was at home in his E. 51st Street apartment in Manhattan in January, when a man broke in.

Bardwil, 60, brandished the gun at the intruder, who then fled, and the businessman called 911.

But when he showed police footage of the incident recorded on his home security system he was arrested on suspicion of possessing an illegal gun.

Bardwil – known as the ‘Linen King’ – denies the charges and pleaded not guilty to gun possession at the Supreme Court in Manhattan yesterday.

His defense lawyer Michael Bachner told the New York Post that the loaded .40 cal Sig Sauer was kept in a secure box in Bardwil’s apartment and was legally registered to his bodyguard.
