Never lend your car to a lead foot without a license: Bentleyville Police Blotter
Speeding more than 21 mph over the posted limit, driving under suspension, warrant: Solon Road
A 33-year-old Cleveland man was initially arrested for going 62 mph in a 35 mph zone at 10:20 p.m. on April 21, telling police he did not have his driver’s license on him. When he gave them his social security number, it turned out that his license had been suspended for failing to comply with Ohio’s Fiscal Responsibility Act (FRA). Police noted that he still carried no proof of insurance.
Police also found a Shaker Heights warrant, where officers refused to pick him up. The car he was driving, which was not his, was towed to an impound lot, with the owner given instructions to retrieve it.
The owner was also advised of the legal implications of knowingly lending their car to someone whose license has been suspended, which could result in a criminal charge of wrongful warrant.
