Authorities have accused a local man of bringing a gun to work.

Luis Ramirez-Hernandez, 29, was charged Aug. 27 with driving while barred, assault use/display of a weapon, and control of firearm, carrying weapons, second-degree harassment, and first-degree harassment.

According to online court documents, a police officer in civilian clothing and an unmarked car recognized Ramirez-Hernandez’s vehicle and knew his license to drive was barred.

The police officer radioed to have a marked police car and uniformed officer to make a traffic stop.

Ramirez-Hernandez said he was on his way to Muscatine to pay his traffic fines.

In a separate document for a separate incident, Ramirez-Hernandez allegedly brought a loaded high-caliber revolver to work, where he stuck the barrel of the weapon into a man’s ribs and asked how it felt.

The man told authorities he felt scared and threatened.

Ramirez-Hernandez admitted to officers to bringing the gun to work and getting the gun from a “homie.”

Driving while barred aggravated misdemeanor. Assault use/display of a weapon is an aggravated misdemeanor. Carrying weapons is an aggravated misdemeanor. Second-degree harassment is a serious misdemeanor. First-degree harassment is an aggravated misdemeanor.
