A Berkshire Hathaway broker was handcuffed and charged with illegal firearm possession after police found an AR-15 rifle and two shotguns at his apartment, according to a report.

Adam Lichtin, who was last year charged with assault and harassment after he allegedly kicked his wife’s leg in November, arrived in court Tuesday for the earlier charges and was put in handcuffs on felony gun charges, according to the New York Post.

Police visited his old apartment on East 33rd Street in Murray Hill, where he was removed from on a protection order, for a routine checkup on his wife when they found the guns, the Post reported.

The broker, who previously worked for Corcoran Group and Trump International Realty, currently works out of Berkshire Hathaway’s Madison Avenue office.

The 43-year-old pleaded not guilty to the third degree criminal possession of weapon during his arraignment at Manhattan Supreme Court, according to the report. He was held on a $10,000 bond.
