Charlie Hanger, the retired trooper who arrested Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh on a
traffic stop in 1995, will speak at Tuesday’s luncheon of that experience and talk about the
“divine intervention” that occurred.
Hanger made a routine traffic stop that ended with the arrest of Timothy McVeigh, who was later charged, convicted and executed for the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, the worst domestic terrorist act in the United States by one of its own citizens.
The arrest has brought him numerous state and national awards. But, he says, there was nothing heroic about what he did, he was only doing his job.
