Man was hurtling through Dorchester with a loaded gun and a machete, police say

Boston Police report arresting a Dorchester man on a variety of charges after they stopped him for driving on the wrong side of the street and speeding and found "an Interarms Ltd .45 caliber handgun loaded with one live .45 cartridge in the chamber and nine .45 in the magazine" and a machete in his car early this morning.

Police say gang-unit officers at Washington and Erie streets spotted a car engaged in bad driving shortly before 12:45 a.m. Police say the officers activated their blue lights and the driver pulled over on Harvard Street just off Washington about a half mile away. The car had a revoked registration and the driver, Jerome Anderson, 32, had no license, police say, adding that officers found the gun, bullets and machete during an inventory search before they had the car towed away.

Anderson was charged with illegal possession of a firearm, illegal possession of ammunition and illegal possession of a loaded firearm police say, adding he was also charged with driving without a license, driving without insurance and speeding.

Innocent, etc.

Unusual for this kind of incident.

Dude was speeding, on the wrong side of the street, with a car full of contraband and no license. He did everything but put a sign on his car saying "ARREST ME I AM COMMITTING FELONIES". Which is to say, I wouldn't be surprised if there were some drugs in play but the cops didn't find them because they didn't search his blood vessels.
