MASON CITY, Iowa – Law enforcement says he ran from them with a loaded handgun. He says he’s not guilty.

Aaron Michael Hermen, 31 of Mason City, was arrested on March 18 and charged with interference with official acts while armed with a firearm, possession of a firearm as a felon, possession of methamphetamine-1st offense, possession of marijuana-1st offense, and possession of methadone-1st offense.
