Seattle Guard who Disarmed Rioter

Mickey talks to the security guard that disarmed two rioters wielding stolen AR-15 rifles last weekend in Seattle, Washington. The guard was able to take them without injuries and return the police rifles to local law enforcement.

The security guard was present in a professional capacity protecting a local news crew when he witnessed rioters taking rifles from vandalized parked police cars. He directed the news crew to shelter and then confronted the armed rioters with his Glock. One rioter shot up a police car, but no one was injured during the incident.

To learn more about the security guard involved, you can follow him on instagram @Shooter_Rughi.
