As the trooper exited his vehicle,the driver of the Hummer exited his vehicle swinging his arms in the air and screaming as he walkedtowards the trooper. At that point it became apparent the driver had an

The driver eventually entered the passenger side front door of his Hummer and began frantically throwing things around, as if he was attempting to get somethingout of the vehicle in a hurry. After two minutes, the driver stepped out of the Hummer and compliedwith the Trooper's command to put his hands on the vehicle.The driver was arrested and a consent was given to search his Hummer. The search of the vehiclerendered a loaded pistol in the backseat and a shotgun that was not loaded. Also found were two largeknives beside the driver's seat and center console.
