WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - A Delaware man is facing prison time after a jury found him guilty of pulling a loaded gun from his waistband during a scuffle with a police officer.

Theodore Smallwood of Wilmington was found guilty of a series of weapons charges including carrying a concealed deadly weapon and felony-level resisting arrest. Because of a prior drug charge, the 20-year-old was not allowed to have a gun and he was also convicted of charges related to that.

The encounter that led to Smallwood’s arrest happened in November 2016 after police approached a group of men who were standing in front of a home where “No Loitering” signs were posted. The struggle with the officer ensued.

Smallwood faces three to 51 years in prison when he is sentenced in July.
