Police attempted to stop two men in a truck in Gaston, S.C., but the pair did not comply, instead leading police on a 10-mile high-speed chase. Police eventually disabled the vehicle by flattening its tires with a stop stick. With the vehicle disabled, the driver of the truck fled on foot. The driver eventually trespassed onto private property. The owner of the property, a National Rifle Association member and Right-to-Carry permit holder, spotted the driver, drew a firearm and ordered the trespasser to get on the ground. The driver complied and the property owner held him at gunpoint until police could arrive.
Following the incident, Lexington County Sherriff’s Deputies told a local media outlet that the armed citizen helped them make the arrest. The property owner added, “I just knew I wanted to get him in a place that he couldn't run and he couldn't come at me or my wife.” (WYFF, Greenville, S.C. 04/23/16)
