COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) -- Police have arrested a man they say recorded himself with a gun inside Nationwide Children's Hospital on Thursday morning.

Stacey Allison, 20, has been charged with Weapons under Disability after police said he was posing with a loaded handgun inside his children's hospital room around 4:53 a.m.

Officers responded and searched the room, where police said a .380 Smith & Wesson was found in hidden in a sweatshirt inside the child's car seat.

Allison is prohibited from possessing a firearm due to a felony burglary conviction in May 2016.

He'll be arraigned in Franklin County Court Friday morning.
