The job of residential cable installer isn't without risks, as two Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) technicians recently found out in Austin, Texas.
Responding to an outage, the pair knocked on the door of a house in the 8300 block of Alum Rock Drive, seeking access to a back yard so that they could work on a box. After the resident, 38-year-old Roberto Benavides, told them to get lost, the techs chose to exercise their easement rights with a ladder.
That's when Benavides allegedly pulled a gun on them. The two techs escaped unharmed and reported the incident to police, who arrested Benavides.
