Prestage is the president of Prestage Farms of South Carolina, LLC., and is a well-known pork and turkey lobbyist in the hallowed halls of the Capitol. Fortunately even frequent visitors are required to submit to a routine search and this is when security found the gun in Prestage’s bag. He was arrested and taken into custody by U. S. Capitol Police on charges of “carrying a pistol without a license”.
