Being attacked while picking up a fare is likely a rideshare driver’s worst nightmare. That is exactly what happened to Scott Javoroski one winter night in Milwaukee. As one man pretended to press a weapon — which turned out to be a cell phone — into Scott’s neck, the other attempted to drag the driver out of the vehicle. Scott’s training as a martial artist and USCCA member helped him keep cool and respond with no loss of life.
In this true-story video, Scott Javorski and his attorney, Amy Scholz, break down the harrowing tale with Concealed Carry Magazine Executive Editor Kevin Michalowski. The three discuss what Scott did right during the encounter as well as what could have gone horribly wrong.
