An Omaha man found with a gun during a traffic stop pleaded not guilty to all counts Sept. 1 in Washington County District Court.

Blut 's next court date is Sept. 28.

According to an arrest affidavit, Blut was arrested June 4. At around 9 p.m., a Washington County Sheriff's deputy saw a black 2010 Chevrolet Malibu on County Road 51 drive around a road closed sign.

The car then reached the intersection of County Road 51 and 34 and turned around and headed south, when the deputy pulled the car over and saw five men inside.

Upon approaching the car, the deputy smelled burnt marijuana, which Blut, who was seated in the front passenger seat, and other passengers had been smoking prior to the stop.
