Now understand that I have no problem with law abiding citizens wearing body armor or carrying their firearms. In fact, I think that is a good thing. However, combining that with a fake Central Intelligence Agency identification makes my eyebrows go up. Such was the situation for one Cassidy Delavergne in Michigan
Cassidy Delavergne wasn't charged with crimes related to the gun or 34 rounds of ammunition. But he was charged Wednesday with possessing a phony Central Intelligence Agency identification card.
FBI spokesman Simon Shaykhet says police were called to the Trillium Theater in Grand Blanc Township near Flint on Tuesday night after someone noticed the vest and gun. Delavergne was watching a movie when police arrived. Upon further investigation, more than 100 additional rounds were found in Delavergne's vehicle parked outside.
Shaykhet declined to say whether agents believe Delavergne planned to use his handgun. According to court documents, he wore the body armor and brought the gun into the theater because he did not want to leave it in his vehicle during the movie.
Reporter Andrew Keller said, "Right now, the FBI is not releasing anything about possible motives, but did say Delavergne claims he was wearing the body armor and carrying the gun because he just got off work and did not want to leave them in his car."
A court filing says Delavergne told an agent he displayed the phony ID to minimize concerns about his gun. Delavergne does have a concealed weapon permit.
So wait, Delavergne has a concealed weapon permit, but thought impersonating a member of the CIA would minimize concerns about his gun? Can you say "stupid"?
This is really what got him in trouble. He wasn't placed under arrest for possessing a gun or body armor, but for impersonating member of the CIA.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
