April 2, 2014: A private security guard in Texas risked his own life to save others. A fight had broken out between four men outside of a business the private security guard was watching. One of the men had smashed a beer bottle over another man’s head and a third man stabbed the fourth man with a knife. The men had seen the security guard headed their way and the suspect that was tabbing the guy thought he was a police officer and let go of the guy. The private security guard feels they would have turned on him and attacked had they known he was not police officer. Two victims were taken to the hospital and the man accused of the stabbing was in police custody.
