During a pat-down, a handgun was found in one of Leggions jacket pockets. At age 19, Leggions cannot carry a firearm in concealed fashion as he is not eligible, to obtain a concealed carry permit. The handgun was a .25 caliber semi-automatic pistol. He was also found to be in possession of Oxycodone.
Leggions was charged with Firearms Not To Be Carried Without a License and Possession of a Controlled Substance.
