The article goes on to state the following:

He admitted to having a weapon in his car when questioned and also to having spent the day drinking alcohol, WTOP reported Monday, citing court documents.

Police handcuffed Lawson and searched his vehicle. They discovered a loaded 12-gauge shotgun, a box of shotgun shells, an 18-inch machete and a pocketknife in his pickup truck, as well as an open bottle of whiskey and white paper with a “green leafy substance” wrapped inside, according to court documents.
