A Fort Wayne man not allowed by law to carry a handgun was arrested on several felony charges after he was accused of pointing a loaded handgun at two people during a fight.
Michael Q. Blair, 34, was charged Wednesday with two preliminary counts of pointing a firearm, two counts of criminal recklessness and one count each of carrying a handgun without a license with a prior felony conviction and possession of a handgun by a person with a previous domestic battery conviction.
Blair was accused by witnesses of getting into an argument at a New Haven mobile home park and was accused by two people of pointing a gun at them, according to the probable cause affidavit.
When police stopped the sport utility vehicle in which Blair was a passenger, they found a loaded 9 mm handgun with a round in the chamber under the passenger seat, according to a report.
Blair has a felony domestic battery conviction from 2008 that bars him from being able to possess a handgun. He was being held Wednesday in lieu of $20,750 bail.
