On tonight's Civil Rights Roundup, NRA Deputy General Counsel Stefan Tahmassebi talks to Cam Edwards about the case of James Grimes of Indiana, whose vehicle was rear-ended by a teen driver. Grimes saw that his car was severely damaged and his elderly mother injured, and when the driver attempted repeatedly to flee the scene, Grimes fired a warning shot into the air. Police jailed him and charged him with felonies, while the offending driver was not arrested and has since disappeared. Tahmassebi reports that Grimes was acquitted after the defense successfully argued that his armed protection of an occupied vehicle was legal under Indiana law.
