KILLADELPHIA: Aaron McKie Faces Gun Charges

aaronmckie_l_1.jpgINQUIRER: Former Philadelphia 76er Aaron F. McKie was arrested this morning on charges he lied while trying to buy two pistols despite a restraining order banning weapons possession. McKie, 35, is to be arraigned this afternoon in Montgomery County Magisterial District Court on one felony and one misdemeanor count stemming from his April 8 trip to Abington Gun Sports in Upper Moreland Township. While filling out paperwork to buy a .38-caliber Smith and Wesson and a 9 mm Ruger, McKie denied that he was subject to a court order restraining him from harassing his “child or an intimate partner or child of such partner,” even though a Delaware County restraining order had been filed in September against him. Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman said that the reasons for the restraining order are confidential and that it formally prohibits McKie from buying or having guns for a year.
