It started off simple enough. It ended up being much more complex.

Members of the Chicago Police Department's 19th district entertainment detail saw a man sitting in a car that was illegally parked in a bus stop outside of Beatnix costume shop at Halsted and Roscoe around 11 o'clock Sunday night. They decided to have a chat with the driver.

According to an officer's report, the man started sweating and "making quick movements," so they asked him to step out of the car and performed a routine pat-down.

That, officers alledge, is when they found a loaded handgun in the man's shorts.

Blake Fisher-Burner, 30, was charged today with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and pot possession. He is being held on $50,000 bond.

Police officers claim that  Fisher-Burner said he carried the loaded gun in his pocket to protect himself from gang members who operate near his mother's house.

CPD case HX334301.
