Driver with handgun arrested

A man was arrested on charges of carrying a loaded handgun while under the influence of drugs by a officer making a traffic stop on June 21, police said.

After pulling over the vehicle on San Antonio Road near Leghorn Street around 4:25 p.m., the driver told the officer that he had a handgun, said Liz Wylie, spokeswoman for the Mountain View Police Department. A search of the car turned up a baseball bat between the door and driver's seat, a loaded handgun, methamphetamine and multiple syringes, Wylie said. The officer also determined that the driver was under the influence of methamphetamine, she said.

Regan Titchen, 49, of Castle Rock, Washington was arrested on multiple felony charges, including possessing and being under the influence of a drug with a firearm, and a misdemeanor charge for possession of syringes, Wylie said.

If we had banned Cars, this would never have happened!

Where are the driving clubbers on this one!?

The "war on cars" is long overdue.

@Rex

Are you drunk or you just can't read? I suggest you go back to school and get some help with your reading skills.

No where in this article does it mention POT.
