STOCKTON - A 44-year-old man was arrested Friday night after he fled officers at a drunken driving checkpoint, dropping a rifle in his flight, the Stockton Police Department reported.
Police said the man, identified as Tino Lewis, was stopped at a drunken driving checkpoint around 10:40 p.m. Friday near West Lane and Klinger Road. Officers said he appeared to be under the influence of alcohol and so they tried to open his door.
Police reported Lewis held his door shut, then sped away, crossing over the center divide on West Lane.
A Stockton police officer spotted the car in the 3700 block of Oak Forest Avenue, where Lewis also was seen running, police reported. As Lewis ran, he dropped a rifle, police said, then jumped a fence.
A search of the block was unsuccessful, but police gathered information identifying Lewis and were thus able to locate him, according to a police report.
Lewis was arrested on suspicion of being a felon in possession of a firearm, refusing the lawful orders of a peace officer, reckless driving, driving on a suspended or revoked license, and possession of an open container of alcohol in a vehicle.

These felons having firearms is just about to kill us gun enthusiasts.... There people need to realise, they gave that right up when committing a crime.

Its that tiny 2% of individuals that use guns for illegial purposes that get all the media attention and move government to restrict gun ownership.

Look at Europe, Canada and Austrailia, thats how they lost their rights to own most firearms. A mass murder and its all the other 98% citizens fault. Problem is the owners of firearms must, MUST stand together and not allow this crap to happen in our country.

But having a firearm is illegal for a felon.

And drunk driving is illegal as well.

This guy obviously just needs some education and a hug...and maybe another law.

As one wise person said "You can't legislate stupid!" More laws only mean more constraints for the law abiding person. Enforcement of current laws and stiffer penalties would be more of a deterrent than another "law to protect society."
