MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A crash victim found himself under arrest after police discovered a gun in the vehicle and several stolen credit cards on him.

On Sept. 30, a Memphis police officer saw a black Nissan Altima that had ran off the road on I-240 at Sam Cooper.

During the investigation, 32-year-old Natavius McCollins identified himself as the driver.

While the officer assisted McCollins with getting his belongings out of the car so the tow truck could take it, a gun was found under a baby car seat.

McCollins said it was his gun and was placed in custody for further investigation.

The officer also found eight debit/credit cards on McCollins which belonged to seven different individuals.

He is charged with illegal possession of credit or debit cards and identity theft trafficking.
