A 19-year-old Michael Sandford was arrested in an attempt to disarm a police during Republican campaign at the Treasury Island Hotel and Casino. Micheal claimed to be interested in getting an autograph from a uniformed officer instead of taking home a signature, he instead attempted to steal the gun from the officer.
It is unclear when the potentially violent incident took place during the Trump rally inside the hotel’s Mystere Theatre, which was packed full of 1,500 of his die-hard supporters.
This is what one of the police said:
“Sandford began a conversation with the officer under the pre tense that he was seeking an autograph.
“During the conversation, Sandford attempted to disarm the officer.”
However during the incident, nearby officers were able to foil the plot, and Sandford was quickly arrested.
