Police: Suspect pulled gun on St. Louis officer
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis man is facing multiple charges after alleging pulling a gun on an officer during a traffic stop while a toddler was sitting in the back seat of the car.
KMOV-TV reports that a loaded AR-15 assault rifle was reportedly next to the toddler.
The incident happened Wednesday night. Police say 21-year-old Gregory Mills was stopped for driving erratically. Police Chief Sam Dotson says Mills had a loaded gun that he dropped on command from police, but he struggled with officers, who used a stun gun to subdue him.
The child and the officers were unhurt. Mills is charged with unlawful use of a weapon, endangering the welfare of a child and resisting arrest. He is jailed on $50,000 bond.
