An Atlantic City mas has pleaded guilty to gun and drug-related charges in connection to two separate incidents in the city.

On Thursday 23-year-old Hamid Palmer pleaded guilty to two indictments charging him with second-degree unlawful possession of a weapon/handgun and third-degree possession of a controlled dangerous substance/methamphetamine.

On May 3rd, 2021, Atlantic City Police were called to Hard Rock for two men having a verbal argument.

While on scene, police learned that Hamid Palmer and the other man, Daniel Brown, began fighting inside of a vehicle they arrived in, wherein Palmer assaulted Brown by biting his right hand, causing injury. While gathering the occupants’ information, police observed a clear, knotted plastic bag containing a white, rock-like substance suspected to be methamphetamine, on the floor of the passenger side of the vehicle.

Neither Palmer nor Brown took ownership of the suspected controlled dangerous substance, which turned out to be methamphetamine, and both were arrested.
