John Popper was arrested by Washington State Patrol Wednesday after he was caught in a speeding car going 111 MPH on Interstate 90. John wasn’t driving, but did own the car. Who cares right? Blues Traveler sucked hard. Well, inside the Mercedes SUV officers discovered
“…a cache of weapons and a small amount of marijuana. A police dog searched the vehicle, finding numerous hidden compartments containing four rifles, nine handguns and a switchblade knife. Authorities also found a Taser and night vision goggles.”
In addition, the car had flashing emergency headlights, a siren and a pa system. The vehicle was of course seized. Popper explained all these installations were because he was afraid of being left behind in the event of a natural disaster. Also, he liked collecting weapons.
Who knew after all these years of mocking the seemingly innocuous Blues Traveler, I might have died in an “accident” from a gun 100 yards away. Seriously, 13 firearms and night vision goggles? The only people who need all that stuff in one place are Rambo and the Terminator. Even then, those guys would call this a little excessive.
