Man Who Passed Out On Tracks Convicted On Gun Charge

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A man found passed out on light-rail train tracks in St. Paul last fall has pleaded guilty to a federal gun charge.

The Pioneer Press reports that 34-year-old Deandre Lenier Neal-Hill of Maplewood pleaded guilty Friday to illegally possessing a firearm as a felon. Metro Transit police officers found Neal-Hill sitting in the driver’s seat of a car parked on the Green Line commuter tracks in October. The car’s engine was still running, had a flat tire, and was stuck on the tracks. Neal-Hill was unresponsive. As officers removed him from the car they noticed a pistol on the driver’s side floor.

Neal-Hill has several felony convictions, including drive-by shooting, assault, and drug sales.
