ROCHESTER, Minn. – A man who reportedly claimed to be allergic to police is scheduled to stand trial.
Janssen Markise Mcgee, 25 of Rochester, is charged with possession of a firearm after being convicted of a crime of violence and 4th degree assault of a peace officer.
He was arrested on September 25, 2017, during an investigation by the Rochester Criminal Interdiction Unit. Police say Mcgee was found in a parked car with a loaded handgun, marijuana, and over $10,000 in cash.
Mcgee is accused of spitting into the face of one of the officers who arrested him. Police say Mcgee later told them he didn’t mean to spit, he was actually sneezing because he is allergic to police.
Mcgee has now pleaded not guilty and his trial is set to begin September 17.
