God bless Sgt Grisham and his family for his service and heroism. I pray this will end well for him and his family. That being said I think that he exhibited an attitude problem with the police officers. At the beginning of the recording the officer told SGT Grisham that as soon as we check you out we will be on our way (or something to that effect). The police received a report of a man with a gun, their job was to check to see that no laws were being violated. They had to conduct an interview with SGT Grisham, no LEO was going to conduct the interview with an armed suspect. We know that SGT Grisham is a good guy but the officers didn't, they had to check him out and they had to disarm him until they checked him out.

A decorated war veteran on a Boy Scout hike with his 15-year-old son was arrested alongside a Texas country road after a police officer accused him of “rudely displaying” a firearm.

Army Master Sgt. C.J. Grisham told Fox News he was illegally disarmed by members of the Temple Police Dept. - even though he held the proper permits to carry his weapons.

Grisham and his son were on a 10-mile hike in a rural area populated by wild boars and cougars. He was carrying an AR-15 rifle and a .45 caliber pistol.

He was charged with resisting arrest - even though...
