NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A known street racer turned himself in on three outstanding warrants Friday, but Metro Nashville police said he is facing additional charges after showing up with guns and drugs inside his car.

Marcus Magee, 24, of Antioch, was wanted on charges for reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon, evading arrest and making a false report following a street racing incident in August where police said a lengthy helicopter pursuit ensued.

A search of the vehicle turned up 1.2 pounds of marijuana and two loaded firearms, according to police.
