FL: Concealed Carrier Disarmed by Felon, Shot
Pannaman, a Vietnam War veteran, was released from the hospital on Sunday.
Michael Q. McAuliffe, 38, is jailed without bond on two charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon and battery on a person 65 or older, according to the Sun Sentinel.
During the incident, Pannaman pulled out his gun to warn McAuliffe, a convicted felon, that it is a felony to disrupt a sea turtle nest -- in an attempt to de-escalate the situation.
"He complied, and I put my gun away... then he attacked me and took my gun," Pannaman added.
