A man who works for the Department of Transportation was pulled over after drunk driving his car into a tree. That's a problem already - but then the police found various weapons, knives and drugs in the minivan, including a samurai sword and over 10 guns. Oh, and there was pinata and a sign that says "Hang Cheney," which seems like the least odd thing in the car, but the Secret Service came to investigate as well. Glenn Kittel, a sign installer for the DoT, was trapped under his dashboard (firefighters got him out with the Jaws of Life!). Neighbors say he was a hunter, which explains why there were so many guns, but there probably needs to be a license for that sort of thing. Kittel was charged with many counts of weapons possession and DWI.
