He's charged with criminal possession of a pistol or revolver, weapon in a motor vehicle, criminal possession of ammunition, illegal possession of less than 4 ounces of marijuana, criminal possession of a pistol or revolver without a permit, operating without a license, and speeding, The Ridgefield Press reports.
