When Moore opened the trunk of his white Honda Civic, two officers noticed what appeared to be military-grade weapons inside. They found nine guns, including a modified sniper rifle, a pistol and a rifle.
A military knife was also discovered.
Moore was given a field sobriety test and arrested on suspicion of drunken driving.
Police say he could also face charges for the weapons.
