An Indiana man was arrested on multiple felony charges following a traffic stop in the city Wednesday night around eight o'clock.
Johnathan Hocking (pictured), 28, of Schneider, Indiana, was stopped after an off duty city officer saw him run red lights at Main Street and Rush Avenue and Main Street and Columbus Avenue.
The Bellefontaine Police Department stopped Hocking on Kent Drive.
He told officers that he had a loaded handgun in his pickup.
Hocking said he was allowed to carry the weapon because he was a deputy marshal in Schneider.
City police contacted the Schneider town marshal, who said Hocking recently resigned his position to take a job with a building construction company that is doing work at Cherokee Run Landfill.
Hocking was charged with felony counts of impersonating a police officer and improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle along with a misdemeanor charge of carrying a concealed weapon.
Police seized a loaded .40-caliber Glock, an unloaded Beretta shotgun, a deputy marshal's badge, and a police shirt.
Hocking was lodged in the Logan County Jail.
The town marshal in Schneider asked police to hold the badge and shirt until he could make arrangements to have the items returned.
