Police who stopped a Queens man for urinating in public say he was also carrying a loaded handgun and five ounces of marijuana.
According to an NYPD release, three officers stopped the driver of a black 2010 Mercedes E350 for "driving recklessly." at around 1:30 a.m. on Saturday in South Jamaica. The driver fled the scene, but not before one of the officers ran his license plate on his new smartphone.
Police say the car was registered to an owner who lived around two and a half miles away in Brookville, so they went to the owner's house. One of the officers noticed a man peeing between two parked cars.
"As the male turned around, the officer observed a bulge in the males upper right waistband area," the release states, noting that it was a loaded, 9mm handgun. Cops also say that the suspect, Marvin Robbins, 23, had five ounces of pot on him at the time of his arrest.
Robbins was charged with criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of more than two ounces of marijuana, possession of marijuana in public, and urinating in public.
It's unclear whether Robbins was the driver of the Mercedes; the NYPD's press office refused to say.
