According to charging documents, a Maryland State Police trooper observed a car exhibiting signs of an impaired driver on Md. 140 in Westminster and made a traffic stop. Myers, the driver of the car, was put through field sobriety tests and subsequently arrested.

According to the charging documents, a 9-millimeter handgun with a 14-round magazine inserted, but no round in the chamber, was then found in Myers’ interior jacket pocket. After contacting the Maryland State Police Gun Unit for appropriate charging, it was determined that Myers did not have a concealed carry permit and that he was prohibited from having a firearm because of previous convictions, the documents state.
