Timothy Matthew Bishop Jr, 19 of Rome, was arrested this week after police said he ran from them when they went to question him about a possible drunk driver.
Reports said that Bishop was standing next to a vehicle matching a description of a possible drunk driver at Tammasee Lane Apartments Wednesday.
Officers said that when they went to talk to Bishop he fled form the scene, while ignoring commands to stop.
After being captured he was found to be in possession of a Titan .25 caliber handgun.
Bishop is charged with obstruction of law enforcement, possession of a weapon by person younger than 18, and possession of a concealed weapon without a license
