BELTON, Texas (AP) A Central Texas jury has begun deliberations in the trial of a Fort Hood soldier arrested for carrying an assault rifle in public.
Jurors deliberated about eight hours Thursday in the Belton trial of Army Master Sgt. Christopher Grisham, and gun-rights advocates are eagerly awaiting the verdict in a Bell County misdemeanor court. Deliberations resume Friday.
Grisham is charged with misdemeanor interference with the duties of an officer. A Temple police officer responding to a report of a man carrying an assault rifle arrested Grisham in March. Grisham was hiking with his 15-year-old son, who was working on a Boy Scout merit badge. The officer has testified he worried about Grisham's reaction after approaching him.
A video of their confrontation being arrested by a police officer was posted online.
