UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS (WCIA) — A Chicago man was arrested for unlawful use of a weapon and resisting police.
20-year old Edward Lanfair-Roach was taken into custody about 3:30 am, Friday, near University Avenue and Fifth Street, in Champaign.
Authorities say they conducted a traffic stop on his vehicle because he drove straight from a left-turn lane.
When officers smelled cannabis coming from the vehicle, they conducted a search.
Officials say they found a handgun in his waistband and allege he resisted officers’ attempts to handcuff him after the gun was found.
