A bartender had stopped serving alcoholic drinks to Wallace, who appeared inebriated, at the Immokalee, Fla. casino at about 4:49 a.m., Florida TV station WBBH reported.

That led Wallace to say he was going to his car to get a firearm.

Collier County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) deputies were alerted to the man’s threats. Wallace had left the casino and began to drive away before deputies pulled his car over.

Initially, he told the deputies there was no firearm in the car. He then became unruly while being placed in a patrol car. While deputies placed handcuffs on him, he allegedly admitted there was a gun under the driver’s seat.

Deputies looked inside the car and found a loaded firearm with a laser sight. Deputies also found 15.9 grams of suspected marijuana in the car.

Wallace was booked at the Collier County Jail for possession of marijuana and simple assault, WBBH reported.

Man Indicted for Striking Woman with Brick on A.C. Boardwalk

Samuel Cooper, 43, of Philadelphia, was indicted last week for first-degree attempted murder and other charges for allegedly hitting an elderly woman in the head with a brick on Atlantic City’s boardwalk.

A grand jury handed down the indictment for the January 6 incident. The brick was covered by a T-shirt when it was used to attack the 67-year-old victim.

Cooper was also charged with aggravated assault, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, unlawful possession of a weapon, and certain persons not to possess weapons, the Press of Atlantic City reported. His case was turned over to local courts for prosecution.
