Prosecutor: Ohio marathoner had gun at race events

CINCINNATI (AP) — Authorities say a Flying Pig Marathoner accused of carrying a loaded gun and commenting about terrorism during the Cincinnati race events has been charged and is hospitalized for mental evaluation.

The Hamilton County prosecutor says 49-year-old David Moore of Cincinnati is charged with carrying a concealed weapon and failing to inform law enforcement, and with menacing by stalking. Court records showed no defense attorney.

The prosecutor says Moore talked about terrorism and complained to the marathon director about his marathon bib number. The prosecutor says Moore also asked the director about her relationship status and asked to speak on stage during Sunday's marathon events.

Police say they asked Moore if he was armed when he continued talking about terrorism, and he showed them a 9 mm gun inside his waistband.
