NEW YORK (CBS 2) — A Yonkers man, stopped by police for speeding, has more to worry about than a moving violation.

Yonkers police said 34-year-old Lazaro Martinez was charged with driving while intoxicated Monday and taken into custody.

Then they searched his car.

In the trunk, they found a Colt Carbine rifle and two fully-loaded magazines.

As a result, Martinez was facing weapons possession charges in addition to DWI.
