The Deputy awoke the Driver and separated him for the gun by asking him to step out of the vehicle and then confirmed that there were other firearms in the vehicle. The deputy also observed Drug Paraphernalia in the vehicle. Once he confirmed that it was drug paraphernalia, the Deputy placed the individual under arrest.

He was transported to the Jail where a more thorough search was performed on the driver, revealing more Meth and a couple of pills.
