In October 2017 law enforcement responded to a complaint on Deer Creek Drive in Xenia, where Prigmore was found in a vehicle with a handgun. The handgun was loaded with seven rounds in the magazine and one in the chamber, according to the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio.

Due to multiple past drug convictions, Prigmore is prohibited from possessing firearms. Prigmore was on parole with the State of Ohio when he committed the federal offense.

According to court documents, law enforcement agencies throughout Ohio and in West Virginia encountered Prigmore throughout 2016 and 2017 at various incidents involving drugs and firearms.
