Almost two weeks after the election was done, a Brooklyn man got himself in trouble when he tried to register to vote in Sullivan County while also looking to obtain a gun permit.

According to the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office, Hamo Hot, 34, filed paperwork to register to vote in the county, and also filed for a New York State Pistol Permit with the Sullivan County Clerk.

Undersheriff Eric Chaboty said authorities believe Hot, a citizen of the former Yugoslav Republic of Montenegro, was attempting to use the voter registration as proof of residency for the permit.

When the address on the applications did not match that on his green card, and a warrant out of Manhattan was discovered, Hot was arrested by officers from the New York State Police and transferred to the Sheriff's custody. The United States Department of Homeland Security was also involved in the investigation.

Hot has been charged with fraudulently registering to vote, which is a felony, and was arraigned by Sullivan County Court Judge Michael McGuire. He was sent to the Sullivan County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail.
