An allegedly drunk driver wasn’t the only loaded thing found in a car that cops in Glendale pulled over on Thursday morning.

Police said the 35-year-old male suspect was stopped by officers from the 104th Precinct at the corner of 64th Place and Central Avenue at 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 29 for allegedly driving a vehicle with tinted windows.

Upon further investigation, authorities said, they observed the man exhibiting signs of intoxication; specific details about those signs were not immediately available. The officers also discovered in his possession a loaded firearm.

The man was subsequently taken into custody by Police Officer Malik Hirani of the 104th Precinct and charged with DWI and criminal possession of a weapon. Police declined to disclose the suspect’s name until after his arraignment, which is scheduled for Thursday night.

Deputy Inspector Mark Wachter, commander of the 104th Precinct, took to Twitter to tout the arrest, noting that it was the result of a rather simple formula.

“Alcohol + gun + car + getting pulled over = Go directly to jail. #onelessgun #NYPDprotecting #dontdrinkanddrive,” Wachter tweeted.
