A Chicago man was arrested Tuesday night for allegedly having a firearm in his parked car outside of Naperville’s TopGolf, 3221 Odyssey Court.

Cornelius Clark Jr., 35, faces two felony counts of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.

Oct. 24 incident

On Oct. 24 around 10:30 p.m., a Naperville police officer observed a firearm in “plain view” in Clark’s vehicle, according to Naperville Police Cmdr. Michaus Williams.

Clark was taken into custody and had his Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card revoked.

Illinois residents must have a FOID card before purchasing or owning any kind of firearm. If your FOID card is revoked, Illinois state law requires you to surrender your ID within 48 hours to local law enforcement.

Clark is scheduled to appear in court for his arraignment on Dec. 1.
