Armed Arkansas man says he's still alive for not complying with officers

You've seen black men get killed after complying with police officers, but an Arkansas man is still breathing because he chose not to comply.

Ed Truitt parked at a convenience store to meet with family members, and an officer shoved a gun in his face.

Truitt says what he did saved his life. It turns out he had a gun in the car, but he says it was legal and out-of-reach of the cop.

The West Helena police chief says Truitt was charged with having a gun in the vehicle. The department says it's checking body cameras and getting statements from the officers involved.
