CHICAGO (AP) Chicago's police superintendent is apparently not content urging his officers to make more arrests.

Early Tuesday morning, Superintendent Garry McCarthy helped arrest a 23-year-old Chicago man on felony weapons charges.

McCarthy was on patrol with officers from the Austin District on the city's West Side when during a traffic stop of a vehicle he helped find a gun. Department spokeswoman Melissa Stratton says that a man in the car, identified as Montrez Armstead was arrested and charged with felony aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.

Stratton says that McCarthy and other members of the department's command staff routinely go out on patrol.
