On 21 June, Cramsey made international headlines after he was pulled over with two others on the New Jersey side of the Holland Tunnel in a truck filled with handguns, ammunition, and long-range weapons.
It was a little over a week after the largest mass shooting in modern US history took place in Orlando, so speculation began immediately that the “heavily armed trio” was on its way to commit another act of violence.
But when Cramsey’s friends back in Allentown, Pennsylvania, heard the news, they immediately called the incident a misunderstanding.
“He was rescuing a girl,” says Lyn Baker. “We have a few people who’ve been very angry at his arrest. Some information has been misleading or just downright incorrect.”
