Nelson crafts legislation to make disarming a peace officer a felony

Posted: Updated:

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.

Now, the hearing on Bill 324 comes the same week Lt. Governor Ray Tenorio was instructed to report to the Hagåtña Precinct to be processed a second time. Tenorio faces misdemeanor charges for grabbing a loaded gun from a veteran police officer at the July BBQ Block Party in Tumon.
