Reporter starts GoFundMe for man who pried gun away from Waffle House shooter

Travis Reinking [VIDEO], 29, has a history of violence and had several encounters with police over the past two years.

Hall decried what he said was a problem in the country with too many guns and a failure to properly treat people with mental illness. He will be charged with four counts of criminal homicide.

Reinking told everyone he was gay, which two colleagues said confused them because he insisted that he would marry Swift.

Sustrich says he also claimed that Swift was harassing and stalking him, and that he quit the crane company because he was paranoid police were following him and it was his last chance to marry the pop star. The FBI says sovereign citizens believe they are separate from the US and don't have to answer to any government authority, including courts and law enforcement.

"With the dynamics of what's going on here, there's an terrible lot, and the clock is ticking", she said. At the FBI's request, Reinking's IL firearms authorization was revoked, and four weapons - including the AR-15-style rifle used in Sunday's shooting - were seized.

As the House hailed him as a hero with a resolution, James Shaw Jr. said he acted early Sunday at a Nashville Waffle House to save his own life, and saved others in the process.

"I want you all to know and I'll say this again", Shaw said.

Shaw said after getting the man out of the Waffle House, he ran one way and saw the suspect, naked save for a jacket, going another way. "And we are praying that people will get together where they can live together and love together".

Not only have they offered to pay Shaw's medical expenses, Waffle House would also like to take care of the medical bills for anyone that was injured during the massacre as well. He says the shooting suspect's father told him he was aware of his son's mental issues and was working to rekindle their relationship. A judge on Tuesday morning ordered him held without bond, pending his next court appearance.

What appeared to drive Reinking greater than something was an obsession with Swift, the report stated. The records did not give a reason why General Sessions Judge Michael Mondelli revoked the bond.

The NRA did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The police reports say that the same day, he went to the offices of his father's construction business with a rifle, shouted expletives at employees and then drove away.

The man fled the scene of the crime and Shaw, whose arm had been grazed by a bullet, stayed behind with the other wounded patrons.

Reinking escaped on foot from the restaurant and shed his only item of clothing.

Alerted to the theft of a BMW from a vehicle dealer last week, officers decided against a risky chase knowing the auto had a Global Positioning System device and could be located.

Reinking was found and arrested on Monday in a wooded area near his Nashville apartment.

Last July, Travis was arrested when he tried to breach a White House security barrier to meet President Trump.

He reportedly said he was a "sovereign citizen" and had a right to inspect the grounds.

Reinking wasn't armed in Washington, however IL police revoked his state firearms card on the FBI's request. According to state law, Travis was allowed to transfer those guns to anyone with a valid FOID card.

Reinking, who police said had a pistol and ammunition in a backpack when he was arrested, was not talking to police. Police gave the guns to Reinking's father, who told them he would keep them away from his son.
