Man stopped on Clayton parking violation jailed on gun charge  

A man without an apparent disability who allegedly illegally parked in a space meant for the disabled ended up in jail after a Clayton sheriff’s deputy checked his identity.

The sheriff’s office said deputies allegedly observed Montavious Adams pull into the parking space Monday without designated decals for the disabled. Upon questioning Adams, the office accused him of giving the deputy a false name -- Felix Santiago -- in hopes of avoiding arrest.

When the deputy learned his true identity, he was arrested for outstanding warrants for violation of probation for entering an auto and robbery. He was additionally charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon after a Mini Draco AK47 was allegedly found in the vehicle he was driving.
