SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Deputies said a man who was reportedly seen firing a gun into the air while walking on Asheville Highway near Hearon Circle Wednesday was arrested on multiple charges.

Deputies said they located the suspect, 32-year-old Dominic Hearst, in front of the Burger King and found a pistol in his waistband. A conviction for burglary in 2008 makes it illegal for Hearst to own a gun, deputies said.

Deputies said they ran the serial number on the gun and discovered it had been reported stolen out of Spartanburg.

Deputies said Hearst also had a plastic bag of marijuana.

Hearst was arrested and charged with felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a stolen firearm, unlawful carry of a pistol, and simple possession of marijuana.
