Ohio officials recently awarded citizen Dylan DeBoard with a Citizens Award of Valor for his role in saving a police officer who was struggling to arrest a drug suspect. Cpl. Michael Wheeler, of the Mount Vernon Police Department, was trying to apprehend a man in June. The suspect became aggressive and, during the ensuing altercation, tried to grab the policeman’s firearms. DeBoard, who carries legally, approached with his handgun at the ready and ordered the bad guy to stop what he was doing. The alleged criminal raised his hands and Wheeler completed the arrest without further incident. (Mount Vernon News, Mount Vernon, Ohio, 7/26/16)

The Armed Citizen® Extra
A man entered a gas station one morning trying to buy tobacco, but didn’t have any identification. Without identification, the manager would not sell to him so the man became enraged and threatened to burn the place down. He was then escorted out of the store, but pulled a gun on the manager in the parking lot. The manager, who had a valid concealed-carry permit, displayed his gun as well, and the man ran away. Not long after, a K-9 officer was called to the scene and tracked the suspect to a home. The suspect was then arrested and taken into custody on charges of felonious assault.
