When 43 year old Michael Foster walked into Walmart he didn’t expect to find himself tackling another customer, but that’s just what happened when he spotted a man with a holstered handgun protruding from under his coat. His day only got worse.
The Florida man thought he was acting as a Good Samaritan when he tackled the man and then put him in a choke-hold. Foster, however, acted a bit too hastily.
Clarence Daniels, 62, kept telling Foster that he was licensed to carry the weapon and pleaded to be let go.
As it turned out, Daniels indeed did have a permit to carry the gun and when police arrived it was Foster that found himself in custody and hauled off to jail.
As always, police are telling all citizens to not take matters into their own hands but to allow the Police to handle these kinds of situations.
Foster was charged with one count of battery and will probably think twice before tackling another customer at Walmart, or anywhere else for that matter.
