SALISBURY, Md.- Salisbury police have arrested a man accused of bringing a loaded handgun to a city playground and then showing it off to several people.

Dupree Antron Horsey, 27, of Fruitland, is charged with possession of firearm by prohibited person, possession of handgun and second-degree assault.

Horsey's arrest stemmed from an incident that allegedly occurred late Tuesday afternoon. Police said an officer was on routine patrol in the area of the Lake Street Playground on Lake Street when he noticed several men on the basketball court huddled around Horsey, who was showing them an item concealed inside a bookbag.

Authorities said that when Horsey spotted the officer, he placed it under a set of bleachers and began to walk away. Officers recovered the bookbag and located a loaded revolver inside it, police said. 

Police said when Horsey was being taken into custody, he spat on an officer. A further investigation revealed that Horsey is prohibited from possessing a handgun due to a prior felony conviction, police said. 

Following his arrest on the aforementioned charges, Horsey was ordered held in the Wicomico County Detention Center in lieu of $50,000 bond.
