"It was subsequently determined that while the arrest warrant was still active, the agency that issued the warrant would not extradite, at which time the individual was released from Secret Service custody".

"Mr. Grant's actions were captured on video, but they do not reflect his account to the media outlet [CNN]", Carrillo said.

In an interview from his hospital bed last month, Grant recounted his version of what went down between him and the gunman to CNN host Chris Cuomo.

Crusius is accused of driving 11 hours from his hometown of Allen, Texas, near Dallas, to El Paso on August 3 and firing at shoppers with an AK47 rifle inside a Walmart store, after which he surrendered to officers who confronted him outside the store.

A list of honorees from the White House event, obtained by ABC News, did not include Grant.

He added: "His statements were inconsistent with what was revealed on video".

On Monday, President Trump honored survivors and heroes of the El Paso massacre to the White House.

President Donald Trump commended Chris Grant at a ceremony Monday at the White House, after he claimed to have thrown soda bottles at the gunman who killed 22 people and wounded 25 on August 3, according to the El Paso Times.

"I saw him popping people off, so to deter him, I started chucking bottles", he said. "And I'm not a baseball player, so one went this way, one went that way".

Grant had traveled to Washington to be honored by President Trump along with first responders and others to be commended for their responses to recent shootings in El Paso and Dayton, Ohio.

"We've never had anything like this happen, never had a victim's report so skewed from what actually happened", said El Paso Sgt. Robert Gomez, according to KVIA.

The president said in his speech: 'Chris Grant was picking out snacks for his kids when he suddenly saw the murderer firing at innocent shoppers a few aisles away from him. "Whereby Chris suffered two very serious gunshot wounds, but he is recovering well and we wish him the best, his family is here". "It didn't matter what party you stand for or what you believe in. It was about recognizing the courageous, dedicated citizens that without hesitation stared evil in the eyes to take care of one another".

"I did what any good man would have done", he said. It says that my father raised me that way. I did what any good man would have done'. According to the Washington Metropolitan Police Department, the Secret Service arrested Grant because he was a "fugitive from justice", the Washington Examiner reported.
