Disabled veteran arrested for pulling gun on attacking dog
« on: October 19, 2017, 07:13:07 PM »
- April 15, Mansfield, Texas-

A disabled veteran on a daily walk from his residence to a local park pulled a legally carried firearm to defend himself from a vicious dog attack on a public street. No shots were fired as the disabled veteran was able to reach safety without firing his weapon, as local residents were outside their homes raising safety concerns. Mansfield police responded to a 911 call and confiscated the veterans weapon, releasing him from the scene to return home. However, four days later he was arrested for display of a firearm calculated to cause alarm. The veteran awaits trial in Tarrant County Court number 9.
The dog owners were not cited and the dog remains at the residence.

Sounds like a bad deal based on information cited. Wonder if the guy had any injuries, reliable witnesses? Since the law waited 3 or 4 days to investigate and charge, wonder if they uncovered something not reported?
