A Wilmington man is in jail, accused of driving drunk *inside* a local Walmart store while carrying a gun.
Officers say 25 year old Owen Stevens was riding in a battery-operated cart at the Walmart in Wilmington on Wednesday night around 11 p.m. He was reportedly crashing into store displays. Fellow shoppers also noticed that Stevens had a gun.
When cops got to the store, they found Stevens had an empty holster-but found the gun in a backpack near the front doors. They say Stevens as “highly intoxicated.” The gun was not loaded.
Stevens is charged with disorderly conduct and having weapons while intoxicated.
