A driver pulled over Sunday in the 3700 block of Mission is not about to claim the mantle of Napoleon of crime anytime soon.

The man first attracted police attention by driving without his headlights on -- at 12:45 in the morning. When asked to hand over a license, he didn't have one. In fact, he had no ID whatsoever. He did, however, have an open bottle of booze in his lap.

That kind of driving companion gets one taken to the station. And, if you have 48 "individually wrapped packaged rocks of cocaine" -- as this driver allegedly did -- they tend to find these things at the station.

The man was booked for driving without a license and cocaine charges. This will not look good on a resume.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
