What would you do if a Muslim with ties to ISIS started walking towards you aggressively during a traffic stop? Would you shoot him or would you forgive him?
TARRANT COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) – A man is in jail, charged with assaulting and harassing an officer with the Arlington Police Department.
Investigators tell CBS 11 News, something that suspect said during the incident also prompted police to notify the FBI.
Wahib Sadek now faces charges of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, and assaulting a public servant.
Since the officer didn’t see Sadek brandishing any type of weapon he holstered his gun and took out a taser. Even though Sadek was ordered to get on the ground, in moments caught on cell phone video, the 22-year-old would not stop walking toward the officer. The officer used the taser on Sadek after the two got into a physical fight. But, with the help of two private citizens, the suspect was eventually taken into custody.
Police say they found several firearms inside Sadek’s car. Investigators also learned later that Sadek allegedly threatened another woman with a knife before the incident in Arlington.
Agents with the FBI were contacted because police say during the arrest Sadek claimed to be affiliated with the ISIS terrorist group.
