Wanna be good Samaritan under arrest

Posted: Updated:

A Florida man who officials say was trying to be a hero is now under arrest.

Forty-three-year-old Michael Foster was in a Walmart parking lot Tuesday when he saw a man with a concealed weapon.  So he followed him into the store, tackled him, and put him in a choke-hold.

The problem is, the man he allegedly attacked has a concealed weapons permit for his handgun.

And that means Foster was in the wrong,  legally.

He was charged with battery.

Police say call law enforcement if you see someone with a gun and become suspicious
