The Armed Citizen® May 20, 2019

A group of young girls were outside their home in the neighborhood when a strange man walked up nearby. The man began to speak to himself and inanimate objects underneath an adjacent carport. Frightened at the man's strange behavior, the girls ran into the home and told their father. The girls' father retrieved his gun and went outside his home where he confronted the strange man, who was told to leave. A neighbor, who was also armed, came outside to see what was going on. The disturbed man then threw his ring at the father and neighbor, telling them he was trying to return the jewelry. Both the neighbor and father called the police and held the man at gunpoint. The man was taken into custody for resisting arrest and drug possession. (ktxs.com, Abilene, Texas, 2/18/19)
