Federal charges have been filed against a 41-year-old man arrested carrying a gun inside Truman Medical Center.
Charles Glasgow Jr. is charged in U.S. District Court with being a felon in possession of a firearm.
According to court documents, Glasgow entered the hospital late Monday night and asked for the room number of a patient. He was told that no one by that name was at the hospital.
He then changed the name of the person he wanted to visit. Security officers told him he needed to leave, and Glasgow became “belligerent” and refused to leave, according to the documents.
Officers then told him he was under arrest for trespassing. As officers tried to arrest him, Glasgow allegedly reached for a gun in his waistband. They were able to get him in custody and take control of the gun.
Because he is a convicted felon, it is illegal for Glasgow to possess a firearm.
