A 26-year-old Napa man was arrested in the Burger King parking lot Saturday afternoon after he was suspected of driving while intoxicated and allegedly had several illegal items in the vehicle he was driving, Napa police said.

Officers were called around 4:30 p.m. to the restaurant parking lot on Jefferson Street regarding a possible intoxicated driver, police said. Officers contacted the driver, Ernest Clark Davis II, who was determined to be under the influence of drugs and arrested, police said.

When officers searched the man’s car, they found a loaded semi-automatic pistol, suspected methamphetamine packaged for sale, prescription opiates, steroids, ecstasy, a small amount of marijuana, and about $4,500 in cash, police said.

They also found materials used to package drugs and other evidence suggesting the sale of illegal drugs, police said. Davis allegedly admitted he owned the items, police said.

The firearm had been reported stolen in a burglary in Solano County, police said. Officers served a search warrant on Davis’ residence in the 3100 block of Silverado Trail and found a small amount of suspected methamphetamine and two high-capacity pistol magazines, police said.

Davis was booked into the Napa jail on suspicion of possessing drugs while in possession of a loaded firearm, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drugs for sale, being under the influence of a controlled substance, receiving stolen property, unlawfully carrying a loaded firearm and driving while under the influence of drugs, police said.
