Cops: El Paso 'Hero' Christopher Grant Made Up His Story

"We saw his actions ... and it's not like he described".

'President Trump, the Secret Service and The White House Staff were beyond what I ever imagined and I am so proud not only to be Chris's sister but to be a citizen of the United States of America!'

Although Grant traveled to D.C., he didn't get his commendation from Trump, who handed it to Grant's mother instead.

Chris Grant, 50, was scheduled to be one of 11 people to receive his certificate of commendation from the president on Monday, but was arrested at the White House on an unrelated arrest warrant. El Paso police told ABC News that it was Grant, although it's unclear what charges he faces.

A USSS spokesperson confirmed to TIME that a visitor to The White House was arrested on Monday, but would not release the name per protocol. Lying in a hospital bed with tubes sprouting from his nose, Grant choked up describing the attack.

"I saw him popping people off, so to deter him, I started chucking bottles", he said. "I just started throwing bottles at him". "I'm not a baseball player, so one went this way and one went that way".

A man accused of gunning down people at a busy Walmart in El Paso last month was indicted Thursday for capital murder, prosecutors announced.

"It was the most unbelievable, once in a lifetime experience I have ever had", she said.

Grant was hit twice near the rib cage, the El Paso Times reported.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott acknowledged weeks after the attack that "mistakes were made" when he sent a fundraising mailer encouraging supporters to "take matters into our own hands" and "DEFEND" Texas.

The El Paso massacre, along with another August mass shooting in the Texas cities of Midland and Odessa, has fueled anger among gun control and immigration advocates, and caused political blowback.

Crusius is accused of driving 11 hours from his hometown of Allen, Texas, near Dallas, to El Paso on August 3 and firing at shoppers with an AK47 rifle inside a Walmart store, after which he surrendered to officers who confronted him outside the store.

According to court documents reviewed by the Washington Examiner, Grant pleaded guilty earlier this year to stealing a vehicle.

But El Paso Police Sgt. Enrique Carrillo said video did not match Grant's account.

Grant claimed that he helped his mother get to safety, then made a decision to slow the shooter down. "We are not demeaning his reaction, which are of basic human instincts, but they amount to an act of self-preservation and nothing above that".

'The video evidence of the scene does not support Mr. Grant's assertions.
