Grand Junction, Colo. (AP) -- Two bail bondsmen are facing
criminal charges after they were accused of brandishing guns as
they chased a wanted fugitive inside a Walmart store in Grand
Junction.
Police said 21-year-old Lee Turner and 32-year-old James Woods
of AA Bail Bonds were issued summons by the Grand Junction Police Department on Monday on suspicion of disorderly conduct and
reckless endangerment.
According to the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel, Turner and Woods were ticketed after they delivered Michael Nilsen to the Mesa County Jail. Nilsen was wanted on escape and drug charges.

    Dressed in scrubby clothes running around a Walmart store with guns out, dropping guns on the floor is not exactly "good work". They are so lucky someone with a CCW or an off duty Cop wasn't there because they would probably have been shot for their actions. Having a CCW if I was in the store with my kids and saw this, they would not have been walking out, I would be justified protecting them from a threat. Be professional if your going to do this line of work. And in case you don't recognize the bond agency they are the ones 'Dog' had to come rescue their business from going under for doing such garbage work, watch the 2 hour special on it, they truly are dangerous morons! Beth even told them right on national tv how sloppy they are.

    Great job in catching the guy. If it would have been cops chasing him it would have been proper police work. Give them a break they caught the guy and did their jobs just like police officers. In order to be a bondsman you have to also become a bail enforcement agent which means apprehend bail jumpers. So all in all I think they did a great job and everybody should look at all the facts before judging them.

      They are not police officers, they have far less training, what they did was uncalled for and very unsafe. They have rules to follow, im guessing they dont have a clue what they are, after all, they broke most of them and they almost caused every in that store their lives. Maybe this will be a good lesson to other bounty hunters.
