A security guard working at a church event over the weekend was saved by his vest late Sunday. The officer was called over when a patron appeared to be intoxicated. The suspect had come to pickup his 20-year-old son. When the suspect became agitated, the guard attempted to use pepper spray. At that point, the suspect pulled a pistol and fired at the secuirty guard, but the vest absorbed the impact and the guard wasn't injured. The suspect was arrested and is in the Lea Co. jail.
