Bill is Trippin’

April 3, 2018 “Bill” was at a west Columbus library with his granddaughter. He was waiting outside to leave when he heard police sirens. He tells us he looked around and saw a man with his hand in his waistband running toward him. “Bill” assessed the situation as fast as he could, cane in hand. He heard officers yelling multiple times to drop the gun. “Bill” says with officers lagging a bit behind the suspect he did what he could to help them nab the armed man.
Bill stuck out a back leg to trip the suspect who was running from police. That move likely saved the 18-year-old suspect’s life. It also allowed police to catch up to him to make the arrest. Police recovered a Glock 9 MM pistol with a high capacity extended clip containing 29 rounds. The suspect, with a lengthy criminal record, went back to jail. No one was injured. Community involvement, be it by courage, bravery and/or fancy footwork, helped take a criminal off the streets of Columbus. Thank you “Bill” for sticking your leg out for us.

  1. Awesome work by Bill. I bet that shitbag gets a lawyer to sue him for interrupting him trying to get to choir practice.

  4. Years of soccer practice had prepared Bill for this moment. Those hundreds of penalty cards were finally going to pay off.

  5. And then he’ll be sued … some maggot lawyer is already developing a case.

  6. If Obola or HRC were President, he’d be indicted for “Obstruction of Justice.”
    Or “Assault with Criminal Intent.”

  7. Good for you, “Bill”. Bet he’s a patriot too. If he’s sued, it will probably go in his favor. That monster he tripped is staying in jail for something. He’s got a RAP sheet a mile long.

  8. I too am a “clip/magazine” natsi….. Why is it so hard for folks to get it right? I magazine presents the next round to be chambered, whilst a clip simply holds bullets.
