Man Arrested for Acting Heroic
Proving that no good deed goes unpunished, a Texas man was arrested after saving another man who was drowning in a river. Dave Newman jumped in despite orders by police not to do so. He was arrested for interfering with police business. The reports don't say exactly how he was interfering, but it seems to me he was doing police business more than anything else.
Unless he actively pushed police rescuers out of the way, the man did nothing wrong. What, we have to get police permission before acting heroic?
