While you were snoozing in front of the television last night, this real-life drama was unfolding:
An unidentified person was arrested in the city's Presidio neighborhood after police discovered a stash of "explosive devices" in a red pickup truck during a routine traffic stop.
According to multiple press reports, the officer smelled a waft of marijuana after pulling over the driver at the 900 block of Old Mason Street. At that point, the driver told the cop that he had fireworks in the car and "passed a device" to the officer.
The cop wasn't so sure that what he was holding was indeed fireworks, so he called the bomb squad to get a second opinion.
The area was closed and businesses were evacuated as police investigated the suspicious scene well into the night.
Just before midnight, the device was detonated and everyone was in the clear. No word on what the suspicious device was exactly, however, police reportedly searched the driver's home and carted out bags of evidence this morning.
