Josey-Davis was stopped for a traffic violation by Highland Park police in September, 2013. He disclosed he had a Smith & Wesson 9mm in his glove compartment that he'd forgotten to remove at home. The police confiscated the gun and told him he could pick it up later at the police station. When Josey-Davis went to retrieve it, he was arrested and charged with unlawful possession of a firearm. By the rule of New Jersey's law, having a gun in one's glove box is the same as carrying it concealed, for which the state rarely issues permits.
