BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

Prosecutors are asking a Beaufort County judge to deny a Bluffton man's request to have weapons and ammunition after they were seized during a standoff two months ago.

Solicitor Duffie Stone has asked the court to declare Anthony Valentino, 35, unfit to carry or possess weapons.

Valentino filled a lawsuit against the town of Bluffton and the police chief, citing a violation of constitutional rights. 

A hearing has been scheduled for Dec. 17.
