Moving forward with what some are calling a citizen’s arrest, Aaron Kreag stopped what he believed to be—and what was confirmed as—an assault in progress on Southlake Boulevard on the afternoon of Dec. 26.
Southlake police officers were dispatched to FM 1709 and Tower for an assault in progress, according to Police Chief Steve Mylett. While en route additional calls were received by the dispatch center indicating another incident was occurring at that same location involving a man with a gun.
According to Chief Mylett, Kreag had observed an assault in progress inside a vehicle, specifically, a man physically assaulting his female front seat passenger. Kreag, who is a concealed handgun license holder, believed the female passenger to be in imminent danger of a felony offense. Witnesses saw Kreag exit his vehicle and confront the suspect of the assault at gunpoint.
As officers arrived on scene they observed two men standing outside of their vehicles in the middle of the roadway. One man—Kreag—was pointing a firearm at MacMichael Nwaiwu, who was arrested at the scene and transported to the Keller jail.
Due to the unusual circumstances in this case, the Southlake Police Department consulted with the Tarrant County District Attorney's Office to determine if Kreag had committed any violations of law, and based on the available information at the scene, the District Attorney's Office did not believe he violated any state law, according to Mylett.
The Southlake Police Department continues to investigate this incident and will work closely with the District Attorney's Office until this investigation is closed.
