Chail pleaded guilty under Britain’s Treason Act at the Old Bailey court in London. The court will pronounce sentence on Chail on March 31. Commander Richard Smith, who is leading the investigation, described the incident as “very serious” and praised the officers on patrol during the incident. “He showed tremendous bravery to confront a masked man armed with a bow and arrow and then took him into custody without harming anyone,” Smith said.
