JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A late-night fight at Waffle House ended with a Jonesboro man arrested on a weapons charge.

At 2 a.m. Sunday, Jonesboro police responded to a report of a “large fight” at the restaurant on Phillips Drive.

Officer Tanner Huff reported finding 33-year-old Sebastian Tramel Moore of Earle with a handgun in his right hand.

“He had the gun pointed straight down and was pacing in an aggressive manner,” the probable cause affidavit stated.

Officer Huff ordered Moore to drop the gun five times before he finally placed it on the ground, according to the court documents.

The gun reportedly belonged to another person and it was knocked out of their hands during the fight.

“Moore told the officers he picked it up to control the fight,” the affidavit said. “Moore has confirmed previous felony convictions.”

On Monday, Craighead County District Judge Tommy Fowler found probable cause to charge Moore with possession of a firearm by certain persons, a Class D felony. He set Moore’s bond at $3,000 cash/surety and told him to appear in circuit court on May 25.
