Elderly War Veteran Charged with Aggravated Assault, LEO Warned that Suspect “Hates White Cops”

SPRING HILL – A potentially dangerous situation for law enforcement ended peacefully yesterday, after sources say an elderly war veteran threatened a family member with a firearm and then fled the scene.

According to reports, 77-year-old Herman Calhoun was taken into custody yesterday at the Motel 6 in Spring Hill, after Sheriff’s Deputies located his vehicle and determined that he had rented a room.

According to an officer safety alert that was dispatched to law enforcement prior to his arrest, Calhoun is suspected of “hating white cops”, is suicidal, and may suffer from dementia. Officials say the case is still open and were unable to comment at this time. It is not known at this time if Calhoun intended on causing harm to any law enforcement officer.

Calhoun is charged with aggravated assault with a firearm and is held on a $2,000 bond at the Hernando County Jail.

  • First off my grandfather does not hate white cops..wtf? People who do not know the situation should keep their mouths shut. Where did that assumption even come from? He’s married to a white woman who is trying to frame him and drag his name into the dirt. He’s worked his entire life. Built a life in Florida to have this woman bring him down like that. He’s not dangerous. “I was framed” I love your response… he didn’t do. So before you all want to pass judgement on a situation that you know nothing about, my best advice is to leave your comments to yourself. He’s fought for this country. He’s a Great man who doesn’t need this bull in his life.

  • This man was purported to have said that he hates white police officers and law enforcement in general he is a decorated War veteran he has never acted upon it and thus his second amendment rights are protected as are his first amendment rights to free speech

  • For everyone that has something to say about the situation, I will clear it all up! His ex wife and him live together, she is a disgusting women and she’s the one who needs help, it was an arguement that got out of hand. She told the police he doesn’t like white cops… why I don’t know. She is white he has white friends and white family. He isn’t suicidal, however the way this women treated him and used him has caused a lot of depression. My grandfather is a great man and worked his butt off to create a great life for himself his ex wife and kids. He fought to protect this country . Whoever has anything bad to say about him doesn’t know him at all! He would give you the clothes off his back if he needed to. This is a sad thing that happened, the women should be arrested as well seeming how she was threatening to harm him and his belongings.

  • Yes the headline DID mention the fact that the man supposedly hates white cops.But that has nothing to do with him being arrested for being black. That is just a racist assumption and allegation.
    The fact that he may suffer from Dementia, may possibly explain why he would make a statement like that. If he even made that statement.
    But there is no reason to suggest that the only thing he was arrested for was being black. That’s just making an erroneous racist accusation which is not cool.

    • It is what it is.Racist

      Thursday, 4 May 2017, 4:39 am
  • From what I’m reading this man didn’t do squat. Maybe an argument got outta hand at home??
    Someone at his house told the cops he was armed & hated cops hoping they would kick in the door & gun him down, early retirement. Get him outta the house for good maybe?? I didn’t read he was arrested in possession of said gun?? ? He didn’t even hit anyone , so they said he hg ad a gun. Complete BS! I hope he gets out & kicks everyone out. Only they probably got a restraining order, more BS! Where’s the proof!! SHOW ME DONT TELL ME!!

    Wednesday, 3 May 2017, 3:58 pm
    • YA!! I agree. This man’s only crime is being black. What’s the bond for that ??

      Wednesday, 3 May 2017, 4:35 pm
      • Oh wonderful. Now you’re gonna make a racial issue out of it. How do you figure this has anything to do with the fact that he’s black?
        It’s racist comments like that which perpetuates the racial divide in this country. Shame on you.

        • The headline already did that.

  • Sounds to me like he should have been Baker Acted instead and receive a Pych eval to determine his mental function. Sad case.

    Wednesday, 3 May 2017, 3:04 pm
    • Absolutely right. Great point. That’s why the Baker Act was created. To help people who may harm themselves or someone else.
      But he sits in a jail cell and I don’t even know if any of what he is accused of is true. So Sad.

  • I have mixed emotions about this case. As a retired firefighter I feel that this man is a threat and Law Enforcement should definitely get him off the streets. As a military veteran I feel sorry for him if in fact as it states in the story, he suffers from Dementia. If this is the case, he doesn’t need to be in a jail cell, he needs to be in a VA facility equipped and capable of treating this veteran.
    Not sure if the hate for white cops is legit or brought on by the dementia.
    Also the story mentions that this man rented a room at Motel 6. Is he normally homeless or does he live in the Spring Hill area etc…..
    If he is homeless, there is help available for him.
    So sad.

    • USA Fire Dog right on.

    • My grandfather IS NOT A DAMN THREAT TO ANYONE. HE HAS NO HATE FIR WHITE COPS NOR DEMENTIA. HES NOT HOMELESS HE WAS LIVING WITH HIS EX WHO SCREWED HIS WHOLE LIFE UP

  • Hope they took his gun away being that everyone seems that they’re entitled to have one in Florida

    Wednesday, 3 May 2017, 12:16 pm
    • You’re actually gonna make a gun issue out of this? Really? No…they actually let him keep his gun because we’re all entitled to have one down here in Florida.
      This isn’t an issue of gun control. This is an issue of a man who committed a crime and may have mental issues such as Dementia.
      And for your information, if you are a law abiding mentally stable citizen, yes you are entitled to own and legally carry a weapon down here in Florida and many other states.You see we believe in something called the Constitution and Bill of Rights. One of those rights is the 2nd Amendment.
      The really nice part of the Bill of Rights is it allows people like myself who want to own and carry a weapon the ability to do so while others like yourself obviously can pass on that right. Isn’t it nice to live in a free country where you have rights? Well maybe I’m asking that question to the wrong person.

      Wednesday, 3 May 2017, 2:16 pm
      • Thank God everybody under the second amendment has the right to bear arms this man was actually a war veteran he has been said to say that he doesn’t like white police officers but he never acted upon it that was his First Amendment right to free speech

        Wednesday, 3 May 2017, 9:25 pm

    • Every law abiding person in America is entitled to cary a firearm

  • Threaten LEO, bang, game over…….period

    Wednesday, 3 May 2017, 12:10 pm
