Police looking for armed man arrested at voting site

A man who was arrested at a North Carolina voting site on Election Day is facing additional charges after he went to the site for a third time.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said in a news release that officers were told that Justin Dunn, 36, who had been recently released from jail, returned to the polling site shortly after 6 p.m. Tuesday. He left before responding officers arrived, police said.

Police said Dunn wore a holstered gun when he voted Tuesday morning, but was asked to leave the polling place after casting his ballot following complaints from others who called police and witnesses who said they felt intimidated. Dunn left, but then returned around 12:30 p.m. and was arrested. He was charged with second-degree trespassing.

A magistrate issued a warrant charging Dunn with second-degree trespassing again. Police said officers are working with court officials to determine if additional laws were broken.
