ELLERY, N.Y. - State police arrested a Wisconsin truck driver Monday afternoon after seizing his handgun during a search.

Michael Coulter, 45, from Milwaukee, did not have a valid permit for his .40-caliber pistol when searched during a checkpoint on Interstate 86 in Chautauqua County, troopers said.

Authorities also said he had three ammunition magazines with 10 rounds each, which violates state law. New York's SAFE Act decreased the amount of permissible rounds from 10 to seven.

Police said Coulter had other weapons in his truck, including metal knuckles.

They're holding him in a county jail at this time.
