According to a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office incident report, a representative from the facility at 2021 Scott Road contacted police about 8:40 a.m. after a staff member saw a firearm on the patient.

Sheriff’s deputies found a loaded pistol in the waistband of Robert David Albright Jr.

Albright, 33, had been admitted to the facility in December for post surgery rehabilitation for injuries sustained in an accident, the report stated.

The reporting officer verified through records that Albright was wanted by the Harlem Police Department and sheriff’s offices in McDuffie and Columbia counties.

Police said he was convicted of felony drug charges in McDuffie County in 2006.

Albright, who was confined to a wheelchair, was taken to the Richmond County jail.

Firearm's prohibited by their company policy? I can't think of any reason why they would qualify for state prohibition. Did he have a valid GFL or GWCL?

He probably didn't leave when they asked him to and was charged with Criminal Trespass. Otherwise, if he could legally own the gun and had a license to carry it, he could have it there. Got to love it when people don't know the law.

Iceman considering he was a patient I think it would be hard to leave when asked. Was he even asked to leave?

Common.sense figured it out

If he's a convicted felon, he can't have a gun. And his mental capacity is in question if he brought one to a doctors office knowing that he couldn't have a gun.

Yeah, that felon thing does

Yeah, that felon thing does it, but if he were not a felon, it was not illegal. How did the clinic know he was a felon? In any case, putting a man in a wheelchair in jail is going to costs us all.

All the guessing in previous posts shows it's a poorly written article.
