    CD)--A Hunter man pleaded guilty Wednesday to a misdemeanor charge of unlawful carry of a weapon related to an incident last year. 36 year-old Russell Andrew Anderson was arrested in December after police received nearly a dozen calls reporting him walking down Willow Road carrying a military-style rifle. The sighting also caused two schools to be locked down. When arrested, Anderson was carrying multiple firearms and a large amount of ammunition. Anderson told police he had a conceal-and-carry license, which was confirmed and found valid, according to the affidavit. Anderson said he thought it was legal to carry his AR-15 in the open. Enid News and Eagle reports, Anderson received a 30-day suspended sentence and was ordered to retake the Self Defense Act class and provide proof to Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation once the class is completed. Anderson's carry license also was suspended for six months, and he was ordered to pay a $250 fine and costs associated with the case.
