PEORIA, Ariz. -

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.

    A NYPD plan intended to better connect with the community seems to have backfired a bit. The police department asked its twitter followers to share pictures of themselves with New York City police officers using the hashtag "myNYPD." Some did share nice pictures, but others not so much.Some of the first pictures posted showed regular citizens standing with very friendly looking police officers.
