An Indiana law allowing people to keep weapons in their cars at work could get its first test in a lawsuit filed by an Indianapolis man.

Thomas Jordan accuses Camby-based ADM Enforcement Inc. of violating the law when it fired him Sept. 1.

Attorney Guy A. Relford tells The Indianapolis Star (http://indy.st/Ogja2b ) Jordan showed an AR-15 rifle he had in his trunk to coworkers while off-duty and not on company property July 6. The weapon accidentally discharged, and Jordan received a written warning saying the AR-15 wasn't an "ADM-authorized weapon."

Employees were notified the next day that they couldn't have weapons in their vehicles while on duty.

Relford says Jordan removed the weapon but ADM cited its presence in firing him.

ADM officials could not be reached for comment.
