MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A man who has had many run-ins with the law, including a police chase on Thanksgiving Day, has been indicted in federal court for possessing two guns, even though he was already a convicted felon.
Fabian Wayne English, 24, was charged with two counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
The indictment alleges that in July 2010, English had a .24 caliber rifle and a nine-millimeter pistol. Because he is a felon he is prohibited from having a firearm or ammunition.
His prior felonies include a 2006 conviction for assault resulting in serious bodily injury and a 2010 conviction in Becker County for fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle.
If convicted, English faces 10 years in prison on each count.
