30 year old Bruce Garmon was arrested yesterday afternoon outside the Bank of America Stadium after police discovered he was carrying a concealed weapon with a full magazine, without a concealed weapon permit.
CMPD officers found the gun as they were checking backpacks near the east side of the stadium as part of the Charlotte’s new Extraordinary Event protocol.
A photo was captured of Garmon being zip-tied by police as they searched the man’s bag.

Garmon also attended several other rallies this past week and he even was interviewed by WBTV during Saturday’s protests.
His Facebook page includes several #BlackLivesMatter posts and this quote by Malcolm X:
At this point CMPD has not released any additional information about Bruce Garmon’s charges.
