Ankeny man charged after rifle found in hotel room overlooking Chicago’s Navy Pier

Thirty-two-year-old Keegan Casteel has been charged with two felony counts of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon. A hotel employee called police on the 4th of July after seeing a rifle and a semi-automatic pistol on the window sill of Casteel’s room. The 12th floor window overlooks Chicago’s popular Navy pier on Lake Michigan. Casteel was released after posting bond and video broadcast by Chicago T-V station W-L-S shows Casteel, who was wearing a Kum N Go t-shirt, kneeling and making what appears to be a proposal to the woman who picked him up. The couple did not speak to reporters and drove away.
