Carrying gun openly results in arrest
A man who said he thought having a concealed weapons permit meant he could wear his .45-caliber handgun in public view was arrested on charges of unlawful carrying of a pistol.
North Charleston police got a call Sunday afternoon about a man walking around a store at 7800 Rivers Ave. Officers saw him walk out of the store and noted a black handgun in a holster in public view.
The owner had a concealed weapons permit and told officers he thought that meant "having it on you," police reported.
Officers said Nathan Charles Dailey, 22, of Summerville, wasn't carrying the pistol within the regulations of the permit because it wasn't hidden from public view in normal wear of clothing.
The handgun was loaded with a bullet in the chamber, and the safety was off, police said.
