CHARLESTON, MO (KFVS) - Scott County Sheriff Rick Walter said a Charleston man is in custody after an encounter with deputies at a local business.
Glenn Hartwick Jr., 22, was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm, unlawful use of a weapon, resisting arrest, assault on a law enforcement officer and possession of marijuana.
Deputies say they noticed Hartwick acting in a suspicious manner as he was leaving a local nightclub early Sunday morning. When they approached Hartwick, they say he ran away from a vehicle that he had been kneeling behind.
When they searched the area where Hartwick had been seen, deputies say they found a loaded handgun hidden under the rear bumper of the vehicle. They say Hartwick then tried to leave the area in another vehicle as officers attempted to take him into custody.
