A man could be facing charges after a rollover wreck, but not just for the crash.

The man rolled his car around 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning near NW 36th and Mayberry.

According to police, the driver missed a curve in the road, causing him to lose control and rollover.

But witnesses told police the man threw something out of the vehicle before it rolled over.

Police searched the crash area and located a weapon stolen in 2011.

They say the man is facing possible charges of DWI and possession of a stolen weapon.
