Armed police threaten and arrest man with 666 tattooed on his forehead in church
Here’s a story from Florida to get your teeth into. Michael W. Holman, 44, visited the First Assembly of God Church in Milligan at around 9:15pm last Wednesday. He was making some ungodly noise and apepared to have been drinking. He was “unsteady on his feet”. When asked to leave, he did.
By chance, an off-duty Okaloosa County Sheriff’s deputy was also in the chuch. He says he “became concerned for Holman’s safety” and went outside to speak with him. Holman “became aggressive” when the off-duty worshipper identified himself as law enforcement. The officer demanded Hollman remove his hands from his pockets.
Unarmed Hollman then “realised the deputy was armed”. How he came to this realisation is not stated in the police report. But according to the policeman Hollman said “he would take his firearm and kill him with it”. He then lunged at the deputy with his “hands clenched in fists”.
Hollman was arrested. He’s been charged with felony corruption by threat to a public servant and misdemeanor disorderly intoxication.
Hollman appears to be a troubled man who could do with being listened to. The policeman comes across as heavy-handed, threatneing and not exactly steeped in Christian ideals of empathy and love…
