Speeder Arrested With Smoke Grenade, Handgun and Police Baton

A driver who was stopped for speeding on a Lubbock street early yesterday was found to have an M-18 smoke grenade, a handgun and police baton. Police arrested Jason McBee around 3 a.m.after he failed a DWI test at 92nd and Clinton. The bomb squad was then called in after the weaponry was found. KAMC-28 said McBee was an Army man. Even so, officials said it was illegal for McBee to be carrying a smoke grenade. Police did not speculate about McBee’s reasons for having the weapons. He was charged not only with a DWI but also two counts of unlawfully carrying a weapon.
