Armed Citizen Stops Knife-Wielding Mexican National

Using his constitutional right, a good guy with a gun helped end a dangerous situation. An armed citizen stopped a knife-wielding Mexican National on Monday who threatened a Greyhound busload of passengers causing the bus to crash.

I guess he learned the hard way to never bring a knife to a gun fight.

Mexican national… It was left unsaid is whether he is a green card holder or an illegal alien. But I think we all know the answer to that question!

Police said an armed citizen stopped a knife-wielding Mexican National on Monday who threatened a Greyhound busload of passengers and caused the bus to crash.

The Gazette identifies the Mexican National as 47-year-old Edmundo Arellanes-Audelo and indicates the bus crashed in Fountain, Colorado.

The Denver Post quotes Fountain Police saying, “[Arellanes-Audelo] gained access into the secured area of the bus and attempted to attack the driver while purposely grabbing the steering wheel.” The crash followed, after which Arellanes-Audelo exited through one of the bus windows in an attempt to escape.

He was confronted by an armed citizen who ordered him to drop the knife. Arellanes-Audelo complied and the citizen held him at gunpoint until the police arrived. More

The Gazette:

A man has been arrested on suspicion of forcing a Greyhound bus to crash into an Interstate 25 guardrail after threatening its driver and passengers, authorities said Tuesday.

Mexican national Edmundo Arellanes-Audelo, 47, faces charges of felony menacing with a weapon, assault, reckless endangerment, felony criminal mischief and hindering public transportation.

A good guy with a gun saves the day despite the best efforts of a stupid criminal who is probably here illegally.
