Man Gets Arrested for Rescuing Drowning Man

Update: In between jury service, tons of work, and being sick last week, I missed this update. The authorities decided to drop charges against the man who heroically rescued another man from drowning.

Update: The police try to explain their actions. Here's a tip that they might want to remember in the future: refusing to speak with authorities does not constitute "interfering" with their duties.
Original post:

This is a classic. Someone please tell the Texas State University police that it is impolite to immediately handcuff and arrest a man after he has just saved another person from drowning. Apparently, the man "interfered with public duties" like standing on the safe shore and ordering a rescuer to leave the drowning person in the water and get out.
