During the 1992 “Rodney King” race riots in Los Angeles, California Gregory Allan Williams distinguished himself by rescuing a Japanese-American motorist who had been pulled out of his car and was being beaten by a mob. While being beaten himself, Williams was able to flag down a passing driver, help the severely injured man into the car where he was driven to the nearest hospital and underwent emergency surgery, which saved his life. A US Marine who became an actor in 1988, Williams has an extensive filmography, http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0930707/. He has also written several books including one about his experiences during the 1992 riots, A Gathering of Heroes: Reflections on Rage and Responsibility : A Memoir of the Los Angeles Riots, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gregory_Alan_Williams.
