Boston Police report arresting a New Hampshire man on gun charges early this morning at Icon on Warrenton Street.
The arrest comes less than two days after the Boston Licensing Board ordered an indefinite shutdown for Icon for permitting underage drinking. That suspension is stayed pending an appeal to the state Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission.
According to police, the 24-year-old from Pelham, NH, whom they did not name, showed up at the club with a loaded gun tucked in "the small of his back" around 12:30 a.m. A bouncer felt it on a pat frisk:
The patron reported he had a license to carry, but when asked, could not produce it. The bouncer secured the firearm at the club and notified the police. Club security told the responding officers that the patron had remained at the front door for several minutes before walking away, leaving his driver’s license and firearm at the club. The officers seized and secured the loaded Glock 19.
The man will be summoned to court on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, carrying a loaded firearm and unlawful possession of a large capacity feeding device.
