A North Carolina State University trustee was arrested for gun possession on U.S. Capitol grounds Wednesday, according to multiple media outlets.
NCSU alumnus Ronald William Prestage, 59, of Camden, S.C. was arrested just after 9:00 a.m. Wednesday at the Cannon House Office Building entrance. A capitol police officer was searching Presage’s bad when he found a loaded 9mm handgun.
Prestage has served on the Board of Trustees since May 2013. He is the president of Prestage Farms in South Carolina and president-elect of the National Pork Producers Council.
He is due in court Thursday morning.
