Texas: SWAT Team Raids Bar, Makes Arrests After Owner Defied Government Orders

Ector County Sheriff Mike Griffis said during a news conference that the owner of Big Daddy Zane’s opened her business even though Gov. Greg Abbott explicitly mandated that bars remain closed.

When police arrived they found six men in body armor and armed with rifles standing outside the establishment.

β€œThis was not a protest of their second amendment rights. It was a show of force to ensure this lady could violate the governor’s order,” Griffis told reporters.

The owner along with the seven armed menΒ were arrested.
