A man tried to disarm a police officer at a Donald Trump rally on Saturday afternoon and was taken into custody, according to local authorities. 

19-year old Michael Sanford was arrested after approaching a Las Vegas Metro officer and striking up a conversation, ostensibly to obtain an autograph.

It was at this time that Sanford allegedly tried to wrest the officer's gun away from him.

After Sanford was arrested he was handed over to the Secret Service and is expected to face charges.
