Jared Loughner, the 22-year-old gunman who allegedly shot Ariz. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in the head, killed six and injured many others at a Tucson, Ariz. public event Saturday, had prior run-ins with the law in the form of at least one arrest, according to two Public Access documents obtained by The Daily Caller.

The Public Access transcripts don’t have extensive  information and it is unclear what exactly Loughner was charged with, but the documents listed Loughner as a “criminal” for a “local charge” on October 17, 2008 in Pima County. It also appears Loughner had a complaint filed against him for a “UNIFORM CITATN.”

Loughner’s Marana Municipal Court disposition date was listed at December 10, 2008. The case and Loughner were dismissed on the same date.

Loughner is currently in custody. On his YouTube page, he listed Mein Kampf and The Communist Manifesto among his favorite books.
