Fortunately, everything went ok, the bad guy left, no shots were fired, nobody got hurt. This was out on the streets, and another person witnessed the activity. After it was over, everyone went their way. The question was later raised, about calling the police, and a police officer told me that it was a law in Tennessee that you must immediately call the police and file a report anytime you have to draw your weapon, even if you do not fire it. I did not feel like arguing with the cop and ending up in more trouble, but I have looked around, and I can not find such a law. I'd like to hear what a lawyer says about this. John?
