A man who was seen relieving himself Monday night in West Rogers Park has been charged with a felony weapons violation.

An officer spotted Gerardo Jasso, 29, urinating in public about 9:30 p.m. in the 6200 block of North Fairfield Avenue, according to Chicago Police.

As officers approached, he ran and threw an object from his waistband, police said. The officers recovered a semi-automatic handgun and took Jasso into custody nearby.

He was charged with a felony count of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon and misdemeanor counts of possession or use of a firearm and incident exposure, police said.
