OK, this is a great story. An off-duty LEO in Texarkana was out for dinner with his LEO son when an altercation became a shooting in the restaurant. The police detective intervened and dealt with the criminal. But here is the nuance from the news story: =-=-= Easley and his son, a Texarkana patrol officer, gave chase as Sledge ran into Zapata's across East Third Street from Hopkins. When approached, Sledge allegedly pulled a firearm and pointed it at Easley -- who was unarmed -- inside Zapata's. When Easley backed away, Sledge allegedly ran to the back storage area of the eatery. Easley borrowed a 9 mm handgun from a Zapata's patron and proceeded to the back of the restaurant.
