A 22-year-old student at Princeton University has been arrested and charged with unlawful possession of a gun.
Samuel Smiddy of Naples, Fla. kept a shotgun at the Clositer Inn, one of the private student eating clubs on Prospect Avenue in Princeton.
Smiddy was arrested Saturday morning, Oct. 22, after a concerned citizen alerted police that he was in possession of a shotgun. Police investigated, confirmed he was in possession of the shotgun at Cloister, and discovered he did not meet the legal requirements to possess the weapon.
He was processed and released, and his court appearance is pending.
