Two suspects were arrested with a large variety of guns, ammunition and explosives after a DPS officer saw a vehicle weaving on Saturday night.

A Department of Public Safety officer saw a vehicle almost collide with a cement barrier wall near US 60 and 91st Avenue. His observation may have stopped a massive tragedy.

When pulled over, the officer saw 30-year-old Michael James Doyle was wearing a ballistic vest and had large bulges in his pockets. A record check revealed his license was suspended.

Doyle's vehicle contained a fully loaded AK-47 Rifle, Pipe bombs and bomb components, a steel plate converted into a shield, a copy of the Anarchist Cookbook, a copy of the Improvised Munitions Handbook, a machete, five magazines with a total of 159 rounds of ammunition and a steel shank.

Doyle and his passenger, 26-year-old Christopher G. Dewey, were handcuffed and searched.

Officers found a set of handcuffs in Doyle's back pocket, a pipe bomb with a red fuse in his front pants and a ballistic vest.

A total of seven complete Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) were found and determined to be safe by the DPS Bomb Squad.

Doyle's estranged wife told authorities Doyle considers himself to be a "Sovereign Citizen."

Detectives say they found a cassette tape of him talking about killing and doomsday, Molotov cocktail devices and a 30-06 scoped rifle inside his home.

Both Doyle and Dewey were booked into jail and face 14 counts of misconduct with explosives, two counts of misconduct with a weapon, use of body armor during commission of a felony.

    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.
