Officers were patrolling the 200 block of Grass Lane early around 1:15 Wednesday morning when they noticed a SUV with several occupants parked in a handicapped spot.

According to the Wilmington Police Department, officers ran the tags on the vehicle and found that it had expired registration. When officers approached the vehicle, one guy got out of the back and ran. Officers chased the suspect down, eventually catching him.

Officers found a loaded semi automatic hand gun in the suspect's waist band. He also had 1.5 grams of cocaine, along with PCP and marijuana.

Curtis Hall Jr. was charged with possession of a gun by a felon and assault on a law enforcement officer because he tried to punch a cop.

Hall is being held on a $200,000 bond.
