38-year-old Bronson Birdow was arrested early Saturday morning after police pulled him over for an improper turn near 17th and B street. 

Police said Birdow had a suspended drivers license with a history of failing to comply, so he was taken into custody. Police found a loaded 9mm handgun and a scale with cocaine residue in the vehicle. 

Birdow is a convicted felon for unlawful transport of firearms out of Louisiana, and therefore not allowed to own a firearm. 

He was arrested for possession of a firearm by a prohibited person, possession of a controlled substance, carrying a concealed weapon, driving under suspension and cited for improper turn and no valid registration.
