Isn't open carry illegal in TX? The rifle in front of him rather than across his back COULD (could, not is, will, or should) be seen as a type of open-carry. Plus the article says he had a .45 with him. Concealed or not?
Now, without watching any video (because I don't need to; I won't be on the jury anyway), the resisting arrest stuff could cause the police problems if he wasn't. But Texas laws, from what I know, aren't all that open in regards to open carry.
It'll be interesting to see what happens.
