A security contractor who was given the job last week to take pictures of damaged pipeline equipment near Standing Rock, North Dakota, last week pulled a gun as he was approached by protesters, some of whom were armed with knives.

Kyle Thompson, who never fired a single shot, will not face charges, as authorities determined he acted in self-defense after his truck was run off of the road and set on fire.
