NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A man who carried a gun at Radnor Lake has lost an appeal that his rights were violated.

A federal court ruled this week that a park ranger didn't violate Leonard Embody's rights when he detained Embody in 2009.

At the time, Embody was in the state natural area wearing camouflage and carrying an AK-47 with a pistol grip and a loaded clip.

It was eventually determined the gun was legal and Embody had a permit to carry the weapon.

The court determined the ranger's action's were reasonable and "having worked hard to appear suspicious... Embody cannot cry foul after park rangers took the bait."
