A New York City police officer and three other men have been arraigned on weapon charges after they were stopped in an SUV loaded with guns. Prosecutors accuse the men of planning to rob drug dealers in the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan.

Prosecutors said Officer Donald Medard, who was off-duty at the time, was driving when police pulled over the Chevrolet Tahoe early Tuesday.

Police arrested Michael Jacob, 22, Claude Dorsica, 20, and Wendell Robinson, 26, who's on probation for selling drugs. Inside the vehicle, police also found a bullet-resistant vest, a ski mask and a knife. Serial numbers on two of the guns had also been filed off.

Prosecutors said Medard was wearing his police-issued handgun and had another gun hidden under his seat when he was nabbed.

The weapons charge carries a sentence of up to 15 years in prison.

Police say the 30-year-old Medard has been suspended from the force. Internal Affairs is investigating the incident. Medard joined the force in July 2003 and was assigned to a precinct in Queens.

At her Queens apartment, Kimberly Medard defended her husband.

This is the genius who tried to ID himself by showing his Glock, right?

I'm sure they were all guns that the officer confiscated from the other 2 men and he was simply transporting them to jail. Cops don't break the law
