He then blocked them, forcing them to stop, turning into an oncoming march.

Harris got out of his car and pointed a gun at the then-uniformed but unarmed security guards, saying he was an investigator and needed to search for the cars.

Reports gathered from the local news agency 1011 Now said, although all 11 members of the guard were unaware at the time, he later claimed that he thought he was pursuing the abduction.

Police arrived at the scene in Idallo, Texas. They were able to disarm and arrest Harris, detaining him without incident.

Harris has now been charged with felony criminal mischief.

These include interference with the Texas military, the image of a civil servant, illegal restraint, a brutal assault with a deadly weapon, and more.
