An Omaha fire captain stopped for a traffic infraction had a small amount of marijuana, an open container of alcohol and a handgun he didn't quickly disclose to a sheriff's deputy, according to allegations from Sarpy County prosecutors.
Frank J. Guido, 41, of Bellevue, was charged last month with two misdemeanors and ticketed on three other infractions in connection with the stop at 42nd Street and Platteview Road in the Bellevue area.
He has pleaded not guilty, and the case is scheduled for trial Nov. 7.
Guido's attorney, Ryan Hoffman, said his client's employment status with the Omaha Fire Department had not changed.
Battalion Chief Tim McCaw, a Fire Department spokesman, said an internal investigation was underway and incomplete. Guido was promoted to captain in 2008.
Guido's pickup was stopped about 2 p.m. on Aug. 30.
He had a valid concealed-carry handgun permit, but he was charged with violating a condition of the permit by not immediately informing a peace officer of the gun when he was stopped, and by possessing the gun after he drank alcohol.
Guido also was ticketed on allegations of speeding, possessing an open container of alcohol and possessing an ounce or less of marijuana.
It is not clear whether deputies asked Guido to complete field sobriety tests or tested his blood-alcohol content. Guido was not charged with driving under the influence.
The Sarpy County Sheriff's Office and the Sarpy County Attorney's Office declined to release the case's incident report before the matter is resolved in court.
An incident report is a public record that contains a police officer's synopsis of what happened. In Douglas County, the reports are made available to the public by the hundreds each week soon after they are prepared.
