A Vienna man is facing drug and gun charges after being pulled over by police early Monday morning.
According to a news release, Vienna Police stopped Nathan Shelton, 38, in the 400 block of 55th Street for running a stop sign just after midnight Monday.

Shelton was charged with possession with the intent to deliver a controlled substance and being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm. Police said he was not allowed to have a gun because of a previous felony conviction.
