Police officers noticed Kenneth Guy driving without a seat belt. Guy, whose nickname is reportedly “the white guy” was driving east bound on 96th Street and as the police followed through streets including 95th Street.
Guy allegedly disregarded a “no left turn” sign to go south on Museum Drive and he was allegedly stopped at 95th and Museum Drive. The officers reported smelling cannabis from the inside of the car after Guy reluctantly opened the window.
When Guy exited the vehicle the officers alleged that they saw a Glock handgun on the floorboard between his feet. The police alleged that the gun had twelve rounds of ammunition and had been reported stolen in June in Chicago.
The police also alleged that Guy had a suspended license and shouldn’t have been driving the car. Despite this fact, the officer reported that Guy was “extremely upset” and allegedly made several unsolicited statements, including that he was at the wrong place at the wrong time.
The police alleged that Guy also made a statement that he was carrying the gun for protection because this is Chicago. Guy did ask the police why he was stopped and he was reportedly told that he wasn’t wearing a seat belt.
The police also told Guy that his car matched the description of a vehicle in a recent robbery. Guy, apparently offended at the implication, allegedly made a statement that he had nothing to do with any robberies and allegedly said he was a drug dealer.
During a search, the police recovered a clear plastic bag containing 21 smaller baggies, each of which allegedly contained crack cocaine. The police alleged that they also recovered a plastic bag containing cannabis and $750.85 in cash.
Guy, while nicknamed “the White Boy” is actually a 25 year old black male, who provided a Chicago address. He was charged with one count of armed violence, one count of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon, possession of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, failure to wear a seatbelt, and disregarding a traffic control device.
