On Wednesday evening, officers saw Arness commit some type of traffic violation and pulled him over in Aurora, prosecutors said. He was then found with a loaded handgun and several bags of marijuana during a search of his vehicle.

Arness, who did not have a valid Firearm Owners Identification card, was then taken into custody and charged, prosecutors said.

Arness is being held on $150,000 bail at the Kane County jail, according to the Kane County sheriff’s office. His next court date was set for March 13.
