The California Highway Patrol has found the .762 rifle Friday afternoon allegedly hidden by Acampo resident Pravindar Singh, said Officer Rick Okazaki.

"It was in a ditch in the water," Okazaki said. "It appears to be a match, from what witnesses are telling us."

Singh, 29, was allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol and cocaine when he pointed a rifle at several motorists and damaged private and county property with his vehicle outside Lodi on Wednesday morning.

Singh faces 15 felony counts — including several counts of brandishing a weapon — and five misdemeanors, Okazaki said.

    He should have used it become a "martyr" and saved taxpayers thousands of dollars.

    It's not .762, it's 7.62. Probably the most common NATO caliber.
