A 38-year-old Walhonding man was arrested by New Albany Police Department officers for multiple warrants after a traffic stop at 5:47 p.m. Feb. 19 at Central College Road and New Albany Links Drive.

The vehicle was stopped because it had no front license plate and because the muffler was loud, according to the police report.

When confronted by officers, the driver became argumentative, refused to provide his driver's license and then said he didn't have one, the report said.

Officers found he had multiple warrants for his arrest, according to the report.

Those warrants originated with the Ohio State Highway Patrol for resisting arrest, according to New Albany police clerk Lauren Johnson.

The man was arrested and charged with improper handling of a firearm, marijuana possession and marijuana-drug-paraphernalia possession.

He admitted that marijuana and a loaded weapon found in the vehicle belonged to him, according to the report.
