Berkeley resident Ryan Romero was arrested early Saturday morning after allegedly driving while intoxicated in South Berkeley, according to a Nixle alert released by Berkeley Police Department on Tuesday afternoon.

On Saturday at 3:42 a.m., an officer spotted a vehicle driving recklessly near Sacramento Street and Ashby Avenue, according to the alert. After the officer was eventually able to stop the vehicle on the 2800 block of Acton Street, he discovered that the driver, Romero, was allegedly intoxicated and had a suspended license, the alert said.

The officer also discovered a loaded handgun with an illegal high-capacity magazine after searching the vehicle, the alert said. Further examination of the handgun revealed that it had previously been reported stolen to San Mateo Police Department, according to the alert.

Romero, who was described by the alert as a 28-year-old male, was arrested on suspicion of “reckless driving, driving on suspended license, driving under the influence, possession of loaded concealed firearm, being a felon in possession of a firearm, and evading the police.”
