Saratoga Springs, Utah (AP) - Dell “Super Dell” Schanze, known for computer store ads and later legal problems, has been charged with carrying a concealed dangerous weapon, reckless driving and three counts of child seat belt violations.

Schanze was stopped Aug. 18 by a Saratoga Springs officer for allegedly weaving in and out of traffic.

City Prosecutor Lindsay Jarvis says the officer found a loaded gun in a fanny pack Schanze was wearing. She says Schanze's concealed-carry permit had expired and no one in the car was wearing a seat belt.

Schanze has pleaded not guilty to all counts. He says he wasn't carrying a weapon and that he was rocking the car back and forth to entertain the kids and never left his traffic lane.

He also says he, his wife and four children all were wearing seat belts.

A hearing in the case is set for May 1.
