Police said Cyr told them he had a pitcher of beer in Newport and he didn’t have a license, either, identifying himself with an expired passport.

He failed a field sobriety test and was arrested at 2:15 a.m.

GUN SEIZED
Portsmouth Police seized a handgun from a 41-year-old Middletown man and charged him with carrying a pistol without a permit on Tuesday after he was stopped for driving a car with a suspended registration.

Police said Manuel Torres, 41, of 11 Constitution Ave., Middletown, was driving south on West Main Road at around 9:50 a.m. when an officer on a traffic post saw the car had tinted window. A check of the registration showed it was suspended.

Once stopped, Torres said he was on his way to a tire shop to get his car fixed and appeared nervous and sweaty.

Police began a search of his car and found a 9mm round and a .380 round. Torres then reportedly said there was a handgun in the car on the floor of the passenger’s side. Police found the weapon, described as a 9mm Sig Sauer SP2022. The gun was loaded with 14 rounds in the magazine and one round in the chamber.

The gun checked out OK after a database query, according to a police report, but the gun was tagged as evidence for the charges. He was also issued a traffic court summons for illegal tint and driving a vehicle with a suspended registration.
