I know the man. I am not surprised. He was an action-oriented guy who is not afraid to think outside the box. At 56 he may be less agile than when I knew him, but the way I remember him, if he had been trying to hurt those officers, he would have.
He's a courageous guy, willing to put his money where his mouth is.
The charges will probably be reduced, but still, he'll have to take time off from work to fly down to FL for his trial. If found gulty, he'll most likely be fined and released. He'll have to pay a lawyer (if one does not volunteer, pro bono) etc.
He has gone out of his way to do the Christian thing: to bring drink to the thirsty.
He is certainly a man to be admired.
At 56, he wouldn't have.
