Temple, Texas: Legal Gun Owner Detains Thug At Raising Canes

Who likes a story with a happy ending?

A thug punched an innocent woman in the head at the Temple, Texas Raising Canes yesterday.

Racial allegations were made. Things got ugly.

But don't worry! A legal gun owner shut this thing down and the thug was detained.

The whole incident started when a man asked to borrow a cell phone from a stranger eating at Raising Cane's.

That's when the exchanged escalated to accusations of racism and a violent brawl.

But it all came to an end when a concealed carry holder detained the thug at gunpoint until police arrived.

Meet Eric Holder - a man who was kind enough to let a stranger use his phone, but not foolish enough to let the stranger walk away while holding said phone.

KSENTV reports:

Holder said he was eating at the 1304 S. 31st St. location with his family Friday evening when a young man approached him asking to borrow his phone.
Holder said he made the call on speaker so he could be the one holding on to it.
The man started arguing and accused Holder of racism because Holder wouldn't let him hold the phone himself. The man then went outside to get a friend, later identified as 21-year-old Christian Watts.
Holder said Watts attacked him and hit his wife in the head during the fight.
"I dislocated my shoulder. I got bruised ribs from it," Holder said. "All because I didn't hand over my cellphone."
Holder pulled his gun and pointed it at Watts to detain him until police arrived around 7 p.m., according to arrest records.
Watts was arrested and charged with assault causing bodily injury.
