YOUNGSTOWN — Police arrested a Glenwood Avenue man Monday on a weapons charge after officers pulled him over for a cracked windshield and he told police he had a gun in the glove box.

Samarr Weatherly, 19, was pulled over about 5:35 p.m. on Market Street on the South Side. When police told him they found out he had a suspended driver's license, he told them about the gun.
