Drew Peterson Charged With Felony Weapons Offense After Surrendering to Police

"Prosecutors have charged the prime suspect in Stacy Peterson's disappearance with a felony weapons offense.

Drew Peterson, 54, turned himself in to Illinois State Police Wednesday, after a judge issued a warrant for his arrest.

The former Bolingbrook, Ill., police sergeant was processed and then released later in the afternoon after one of his son's posted bail.

Peterson walked into the police station shortly before 1 p.m. CDT, accompanied by his attorney, Joel Brodsky. He was taken shortly afterward to the Will County jail.

His son posted $7,500, or 10 percent of a $75,000 bond, to secure his release pending trial.

The weapons charge, a class three felony, stems from the fact that one of the 11 guns authorities seized Nov. 1 in their investigation into Peterson's fourth wife Stacy's disappearance is shorter than allowed by Illinois law, according to Brodsky. Specifically, the rifle's barrel doesn't meet the 16-inch length requirement.

Brodsky said the weapon in question is an AR-15 semiautomatic assault rifle that Peterson used while he was a police sergeant.

Peterson claimed he legally owned the rifle as an officer, and the law only pertains to civilians."

Thinks himself to be one super-dee-duper entitled son of a bitch, now doesn't he? Offs one wife after another, and after swearing allegiance to the Constitution goes a'bawling that he was more special than those he avowed to defend.

On a high note, come judgment day for him, and those like him, its one less scumbag for the angels to take down because this sucker is going away for a loooooong time.

I know; you're a little pissed I called you an angel but shhhhhhhh.
