Meadville man who city police say vomited out of his car window while driving through a Park Avenue fast food restaurant in midsummer incident will stand trial after being found unconscious in his moving vehicle with two loaded handguns that he did not have a permit to carry.
Bryan Jones, 32, of 723 Terrace St., on Monday waived his preliminary hearing before Judicial District Judge Samuel Pendolino.
Jones was unconscious inside his running Pontiac sedan in the McDonald’s parking lot when police responded to the July 30 incident at around 2:36 a.m., according to the criminal complaint filed against him. He had already vomited on the floor under the drive-thru attendant, according to the complaint.
With Jones inside the vehicle were two loaded pistols, police reported, a .22 caliber Glock 44 pistol and a .380 caliber Ruger LCP II. Police charged Jones with carrying arms without the proper concealed carry permit.
Police also charged Jones with impaired driving (DUI) with a blood alcohol level of 0.15 percent, nearly double the state’s legal limit of 0.08 percent.
Jones faces two counts of felony unlicensed firearms, two counts of impaired driving, one count of disorderly driving related to alleged vomiting and one count summary of conduct while operating privileges were suspended.
An additional charge of receiving stolen property was withdrawn by prosecutors during the hearing.
A trial will be scheduled for the January term of the Crawford County Court of Common Pleas. Jones remains free on a $ 20,000 bond.
