    Good job holding this repeat offender until police arrived! The offender Warren Hamilton is LUCKY he did not get shot! Now we all can pay for his time in jail/prison. It states he was arrested for the warrant he had on him? What about stolen vehicle and attempted breaking and entering? What a joke!
