Making it a criminal felony to disarm a peace officer, a measure proposing to do that is set to go up for a public hearing tomorrow.

Bill 324, introduced by public safety chair Sen. Telena Nelson, would make disarming a peace officer a third degree felony. The measure states the offense would be greater if the defendant has intent to injure anyone. The public hearing is set for 1 p.m. tomorrow at the Guam Congress Building.
