CITIZEN EYEWITNESS REPORTS DETENTION OF OATHKEEPER WHO WAS LAWFULLY DRIVING TO COURTHOUSE FOR WALTER FITZPATRICK III HEARING
by Pixel Patriot
(Apr. 20, 2010) — An eyewitness account states that as of approximately 7:20 a.m. today, Patriots were traveling due east on Highway 68 toward Sweetwater, TN in transit to the Monroe County courthouse to show support for Lt. Cmdr. Walter Fitzpatrick III (Ret.), who had been arrested on April 1 after attempting to effect a citizen’s arrest at the courthouse.
The travelers were approximately 15 minutes from their destination when an Oath Keeper was pulled over while driving lawfully. He has now been removed from his vehicle and is in the back of either a Sheriff’s car or a TN State Trooper’s vehicle. Two unmarked SUV’s are also on the scene. Carl Swensson, an eyewitness who was traveling behind in a separate vehicle, said that neither of them was driving unlawfully.
The eyewitness reports that the only difference between Swensson’s vehicle and the car in front of him was that the latter had a sign that said “Oath Keeper.” Swensson said the sign was not hand drawn but professionally made. It was Swensson’s opinion that the the police “must have been tracking them.”
Also reported is that Swensson has been in communication with Mack Ellis of the U.S. Grand Jury and that the Monroe County courthouse is in “lockdown,” meaning that no one is allowed anywhere near or inside the courthouse except the defendant.
More information will be provided as it becomes available.
