The armed man who reportedly asked for directions to the nearest Baptist church and was arrested later by an off-duty police officer, has history of mental illness according to his family.

Tony Dwayne Albert II, 33-year-old, had allegedly went to the restroom in Las MaƱanitas Mexican restaurant in Seguin on Monday. He then came out and asked for directions for the nearest Baptist church. Brianna Jimminez, a restaurant waitress, saw him grabbing a handgun and leaving. She asked her mother to call police.

Authorities announced that the handgun was in fact stolen days earlier from a home, but they were not sure about Albert involvement in the theft of the gun.

Albert was arrested in the San Antonio suburb of Seguin, with a loaded handgun, extra ammunition and a face shield.
