A Kansas City man is facing a federal firearm charge after police found him asleep in a running car at a stop sign.
It was just after 6 a.m. Monday when police were called to 42nd and Harrison streets and discovered Edward D. Clark asleep behind the wheel of a running car in the middle of the street.
Police saw a bag of what appeared to be cocaine in his lap and a 9 mm semiautomatic handgun next to his foot, according to court documents.
Officers also noticed he had white powder caked in his nostrils, according to court records.
Because Clark, 38, has prior felony convictions for assault and armed criminal action, he cannot legally possess a firearm, court documents say.
