Active Duty Soldier Arrested for Legally Carrying Firearms in Texas

Veteran arrested for legally carrying rifle TX

Officer Steve Ermis and his supervisor Sergeant Minnicks of the Temple Police Dept in TX, have really stepped in it.
They arrested Army Master Sgt. Christopher J. Grisham who was on a 10 mile hike with his 15 year old son, fulfilling an Eagle scout requirement.
Someone had reported “suspicious” armed people to the cops, and this caused Officer Ermis to disarm and arrest Sgt. Grisholm in the sight of his son, who was operating a camera. Readers can see a video of the entire event HERE.
The Blaze is carrying a more detailed account.
Seargeant Grisholm has had charges reduced from resisting arrest (because he didn’t) to a misdemeanor charge which essentially corresponds to talking too much while being arrested. His guns, which were not carried illegally nor unsafely, have not yet been returned to him.  Grisholm mentions that his  arrest was on March 16, 2013,  five “days after he urged the Temple City Council to declare that citizen rights to keep and bear arms will not be infringed“.
You know how much members of the military make, so check out Grisholm’s   legal fund HERE. to defend 2nd amendment rights,  to spank these keystone Temple cops for arresting him, taking his guns, and for detaining his son illegally for interrogation.

  1. I have met much resistance in getting the public records of the alleged 911 call of a complaint by a citizen that was allegedly 'alarmed'. They claim that the phone call is protected by the CDA who feels that releasing the call would compromise their effort to prosecute him. I will bet money that there is no alarmed citizen call.

    1. There\’s a good chance that you\’re correct about that. I think there was a pair of keystone cops pushing their weight around.
