CLEVELAND — Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson’s grandson pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges stemming from a traffic stop in mid-May.

Frank Q. Jackson, 22, has been convicted of aggravated menacing, aggravated disorderly conduct and attempted drug abuse. All of the charges are misdemeanors.

On May 18, Jackson threatened two men and then “failed to promptly inform police that he possessed a concealed handgun in his vehicle.” Court records state that when police searched Jackson’s car, they also discovered two oxycodone pills wrapped up in a dollar bill.

Jackson was also charged with two counts improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle, but according to Cleveland Municipal Court records, those charges have been dropped.

Jackson is scheduled to appear in court on July 22 for sentencing.
