A man from Poteau was arrested early Wednesday for brandishing a weapon and assault on an officer.
Armando Sanchez-Pedro, 31, was arrested in West Virginia on January 9.
According to a press release from Wheeling, West Virginia, officers were dispatched to the area of Exit Zero on Interstate 70 just after 12:30 a.m. for a possible intoxicated driver who may have struck a barrier.
Officers initially did not locate the driver of the vehicle, but further investigation led them to a business.
When officers approached Sanchez-Pedro about the situation, he displayed and later attempted to conceal a firearm.
After multiple verbal orders by police, Sanchez-Pedro placed the weapon on the ground and then was arrested.
Sanchez-Pedro is facing charges of brandishing, obstructing and unlawful assault on an officer.
