RPD: Speeding Driver Arrested For DUI In East Redding

An early morning drunk driving arrest was complicated by the discovery of some loaded guns. Just before 2AM Tuesday Redding Police near Victor and Hartnell stopped a Ford Ranger for speeding. Officers thought the driver, 18-year-old Tony Perez, may have been drinking and had him do a set of field sobriety tests, then arrested him for DUI. While talking with the passengers, officers say they found 19-year-old Chyanne Valasco to be in possession of a loaded gun. The truck was searched and a loaded rifle was reportedly found near the driver’s seat. Valasco and Perez were both booked into jail.
