A little unusual for a CCW holder, but sounds justified.

It used to be known as a plain vanilla citizens arrest. Now it’s piquing news.

Sounds like an excellent way to lose your CCW permit. Solving crimes is what armed cops are permitted to do - not armed citizens who just happen to be nearby and are not personally threatened. But since he didn’t pull the trigger, they might let it slide. Would totally depend on the attitude of the cop on the scene.

The driver, Tracy Andrew Isbell, 26, of Covington, Ga., was being held Thursday in the Duval County jail on an unrelated charge of armed possession of marijuana.
I want to know what armed possession of marijuana means? lol

Two points. The first is if you are involved in an accident in a bad neighborhood, where you might be endangered if you stay around, you *might* be able to leave the scene, if, as soon as you are out of danger, you call the police and wait for them there. But absolutely zero hesitation is allowed, and the clock is ticking.

If you are pursued, you basically *have* to find a cop ASAP, because your pursuer could get a lot of leeway if they smite you or try to.

So the best bet is to remain on scene if at all possible. Watch out if a crowd forms.

CCW means you can have a gun ..BUT.. don’t use it..
If you use it they will take it away..

Pretty much like you RENTING your house from the givernment for property taxes..
The givernment REALLY OWNS your house AND the gun..

Good for Mr. Avery!

He witnessed a crime, called the cops, and detained the perp for them, without firing a single shot.
