OH marathoner charged: menacing, weapons counts

MARATHON-GUN-9MM

CINCINNATI (AP) — A prosecutor says a Flying Pig Marathon participant accused of carrying a loaded gun and commenting about terrorism during the Cincinnati race events has been charged with menacing by stalking and weapons counts.

The Hamilton County prosecutor says 49-year-old David Moore of suburban Cincinnati was indicted Monday on a count of menacing by stalking and various weapons charges including carrying a concealed weapon.

The prosecutor says Moore talked about terrorism and complained to the director of the May 5 race about his race bib number. The prosecutor says Moore also asked the director about her relationship status and asked to speak on stage.

Police say Moore opened his coat to reveal a loaded 9 mm gun when asked if he was armed.

Court records don’t list an attorney for Moore.
