Good Samaritan faces lawsuit from the criminal he stopped with force
A good Samaritan who fought off a robber at a Starbucks in Fresno and stabbed the robber to subdue him now faces a lawsuit from the robber. Here is the abc7 story. The mother claims excessive force and vigilantism.
This all sounds perverse. Although I would not be able to intervene myself (other than call 911).
This makes you wonder about the law surrounding a “citizen’s arrest”.
This litigation will go nowhere. Law, and order.
