OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A gun rights activist accused of illegally taking a rifle into an Oklahoma City restaurant is facing a felony charge.
Police say 52-year-old Timothy A. Harper violated a state law that bars possessing or carrying a rifle in any establishment where alcoholic beverages are consumed. He was arrested Tuesday.
A police affidavit shows prosecutors have agreed to charge Harper. If convicted, he faces up to two years in prison and a $1,000 fine.
Police say he was asked to leave the restaurant.
Harper, of Choctaw, is being held at the county jail. No bail has been set.
