You come across many unusual sights while riding the New York City subway. For example, a man who fell asleep with a loaded gun in his hand. 

The NYPD arrested 19-year-old Demarrius Jackson around 7 a.m. yesterday morning after he was seen sprawled out on the N train with the weapon in his hand. A passenger who exited the train at Times Square informed police, who found Jackson deep in the throes of slumber. 

The South Carolina resident was charged with possession of a defaced firearm, possession of a loaded firearm and unlawful possession of marijuana, just to add insult to injury.
