Police discovered a stash of drugs and guns in the Richmond District after responding to a call of a possibly drunk dude passed out inside his car. 

Police were called out to the intersection of 40th Avenue and Fulton just before midnight on Sept. 26, on reports of a possible DUI. Witnesses say the driver had been swerving over double yellow lines on the street and driving directly into oncoming traffic, according to police reports. 

Police arrived at he scene and found the car stopped and the driver slumped over in his seat. His cellphone was in his left hand, with a partially composed text message, visible to officers. 

"The car was in gear and for the safety of all parties involved, the officers had to put the vehicle into park," police reports stated.

Police conducted a thorough narcotics sweep of the car and discovered a nice size quantity of heroin, drug paraphernalia, a baseball bat, and a Smith and Wesson pistol with six rounds of ammunition tucked between the front seats.

The unconscious driver was later arrested and booked into San Francisco County Jail on multiple felony charges.

  • 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.'"
