Gun-toting teen found lying in street, yelling at cars


SPRING HILL - Sheriff's deputies arrested a Spring Hill teenager who was found lying in a road yelling at cars with a gun in his pocket.

The sheriff's office received a call early Thursday morning that Johnathan Conrad Richardson, 18, was in the road near Philatelic Drive and Apache Trail, yelling at cars passing by.

Deputies found Richardson with his pants around his ankles. An affidavit showed Richardson appeared to be under the influence of drugs and was "act(ing) belligerent, yelling, screaming and acting irrational."

Before being patted down by law enforcement, Richardson said "Please don't shoot me. There's a firearm in my pocket." Deputies found a .22 caliber Llama Especial gun in his pocket, and two baggies of marijuana.

Richardson was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana and concealing a weapon. Because the Spring Hill teen was out on bond on charges of home invasion with a weapon and grand theft, he was not given a bond.
