St. Paul police say they've turned over the case involving an armed state legislator to the city attorney's office for review.
Police spokesman Andy Skoogman tells KSTP-TV investigators contacted state Rep. Tom Hackbarth about inconsistencies in the story he gave officers the night his gun was seized in the parking lot of a Planned Parenthood clinic in St. Paul. A security guard called police after spotting Hackbarth's firearm.
Hackbarth of Cedar wasn't arrested in the incident about two weeks ago. He has a permit to carry a weapon in public.
Hackbarth, 58, told police that he was in the area looking for a woman he had been dating and he wasn't aware that he was parked outside a clinic where abortions are performed. St. Paul Deputy City Attorney Therese Skarda says she has not reviewed the case.
