BROOKSVILLE - Mark Barthalow, 43, was arrested on Pointview Road on Monday on multiple charges after authorities said they found him carrying a concealed weapon without a permit.
Barthalow told a deputy he was looking for his stolen laptop and took the 40-caliber Smith & Wesson gun with him for protection.
According to an arrest affidavit, Barthalow appeared to be drunk and irate.
Barthalow was arrested on charges of drunken driving, refusal to submit to a breath test, driving on a suspended license and carrying a concealed weapon. He was being held with no bail.
Jail records show Barthalow was arrested earlier this month on charges of drunken driving and driving with a suspended license.
