Man Arrested at Trump Rally Says He Was Trying to Kill Him

trump rallyA man was arrested at a Donald Trump campaign rally recently, and he revealed to authorities afterward that he was trying to kill the GOP candidate.

According to the AP, Michael Sandford was arrested days ago when Trump spoke in Vegas. Sanford was trying to grab an officer’s gun by the handle.

Sandford has been charged with an act of violence on restricted grounds. But that’s not all he was trying to do:

It cites a report by Special Agent Swierkowski, whose first name was not included, saying Sandford told officers he drove from California to kill Trump and went to a Las Vegas gun range the day before to learn to shoot.

Sandford is reportedly only 19 years old.
