Picture caption id’s him as a ‘protester’. Good thing the cop was quick.
The man arrested at a rally for Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump was taken into custody after he tried to disarm a police officer, the Metropolitan Police Department said.
Michael Sandford, 19, approached a uniformed Metro officer at the TI rally, 3300 Las Vegas Blvd. South, police said. “Sandford began a conversation with the officer under the pretense that he was seeking an autograph,” Metro said. Sandford then tried to disarm the officer, the department said.
“The officers assigned to the event were able to quickly take Sandford into custody with little further disruption at the venue,” Metro said.
“Custody of Sandford has since been handed over to the United States Secret Service, where he will face formal charges.”
