“As Sgt. Holt approached Mr. Roberts, Sgt. Holt immediately observed the bottom part of a black holster on Mr. Roberts right hip. The holster was being mostly covered by Mr. Roberts black shirt that he was wearing,” the report says. “Sgt. Holt then drew his service pistol and gave Mr. Roberts commands to place his hands on top of the vehicle. Mr. Roberts complied with these orders. Sgt. Holt and Officer Robinson then lifted up Mr. Roberts shirts, and discovered a handgun inside the holster that was being covered.”

The officers said after questioning, the suspect told them that he also had another gun hidden in his car.
