It happened early this morning, as Evansville Police were investigating a stolen scooter report.
27 year-old Seth Wrinkles is being held without bond in the Vanderburgh County Jail.
Officers stopped him on a moped at Oakley and Virginia around 3 a.m.
They say he had a small handgun in his front pocket.
The weapon was not reported as being stolen, but officers say Wrinkles doesn't have a permit and isn't supposed to have a gun since he's a felon.
Seth Wrinkles is the son of Matthew Eric Wrinkles, who was executed in 2009 for murdering three people in Vanderburgh County in 1994.
