WAUSAU - A 22-year-old Wausau man was arrested Thursday after police found a stolen gun and drug paraphernalia in his car.

According to Wausau police, Pao G. Vang was driving down S. 3rd Avenue when he crashed a parked car, causing him to flip over.

No one was hurt.

Police found two 9mm handguns inside Vang's car along with a meth pipe, said Wausau Deputy Police Chief Bryan Hilts.

One of the guns had been reported stolen.

"It's unusual to have a roll over type accident in the city because the speed limit in the city and the speeds vehicles tend to travel," Hilts said.

The speed limit is 25 miles per hour where Vang crashed.

He was likely speeding and may have been under the influence of drugs.

Vang is a convicted felon.

He is currently being held in the Marathon County Jail.
