    Rowlett police arrested 17-year-old Diego Horta on Tuesday night on drug and weapons charges.

    Officer Cruz Hernandez, a spokesman for the department about 32 kilometers northeast of Dallas, says the officer approached the teen while patrolling near Rowlett High School and the city's community center as two sporting events were wrapping up.

    Hernandez says the officer saw the semi-automatic rifle on the seat and took Horta into custody. Police also found drugs, an illegal club and about 100 rounds of ammunition in his car. Court records did not show attorney information for Horta.
