    Can't get your house guests to leave? Put a mat outside the door that gets right to the point.

    There are plenty of ways a homeowner can let a house guest know he's no longer welcome. But police say one Bay Area man decided to take a violent approach to ejecting a friend who stayed too long.

    Donald Dunlevy was ready for his friend to leave his mobile home. When he refused, the two got physical -- fists flew and the fight eventually turned into a squabble over money, the Contra Costa Times reported.

    Dunlevy pulled out a gun and used a bullet to settle the debt, police said.

    Now the house guest is staying a new place -- the hospital, where he was listed in critical condition.

    Dunlevy got to spend some quality time with the law after they arrested him on assault charges.
