Man Guilty For Tackling Gunman At Brandon Walmart

43-year-old Michael Foster was found guilty of tackling another man who was legally carrying a firearm in a Walmart.

The incident was caught by surveillance video at the Walmart on Causeway Boulevard in Brandon back on January 20th.

Foster was charged after he tackled 62 year old Clarence Daniels as he entered the store. Foster followed Daniels into the store, shouted, “He’s got a gun,” and he tackled him.

Daniels has a concealed carry permit for the gun and said so, but Foster continued to keep him in a chokehold.

A jury found Foster guilty of battery this week. His sentencing is scheduled for May 7.
