NBC News is wants you to know that an “arsenal of weapons found in truck of man passed out behind wheel in Florida.” ZOMG!
A stockpile of weapons, including loaded handguns and a semi-automatic rifle, was found in the back of a truck after Florida police found the driver passed out behind the wheel.
David Goldammer, 32, was arrested after officers found him unconscious in his pickup with the engine running and parked in front of an alley in Miami Beach around 1 a.m. ET on Thursday.
It turns out that Goldammer had tipped a bottle or two.
Police said they could smell alcohol coming from the car and Goldammer almost fell when they told him to get out of the vehicle.
Two open beer bottles were found in the truck, as well as two loaded handguns. He also had a gun in the waistband of his pants, police said.
Goldammer’s facing charges of DUI, open carry (while not fishing), and carrying a concealed weapon (without a permit, we assume).
As for that frightening “arsenal” they discovered in his vehicle, if it weren’t for the fact that Miami Beach PD (no friends of civilian gun ownership) came across the blotto’d Goldammer at 1:00 a.m., that looks more like what lots of gun owners take to the range for an afternoon of practice and plinking.
“What’s alarming in this case is that it’s the early morning hours, it’s Thursday morning, and there’s a man asleep at the wheel under the influence of an alcoholic beverage with an arsenal of weapons in his possession,” police spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez told NBC affiliate WTVJ.
A few useful lessons: Don’t drink and drive. Don’t get drunk while carrying a firearm. And stay out of Miami Beach.
