An Eatonton man entered a guilty plea Thursday for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in a Macon district court.
Christian MacKean, 37, was driving a pick-up truck in August of 2013 when he was pulled over in Monroe County for speeding, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney's office. He refused to show his driver's license or his insurance card, the release states. McKean reached for something and the officer who stopped him noticed a bulge under his shirt, the release states, and suspected there was a weapon. The officer called for backup.
