An officer noticed a familiar car in a gas station parking lot one day. The window was smashed out of the vehicle which caught his attention. It turns out the officer dealt with this subject just a month prior during a domestic violence incident.
The officer knew from that incident that the man’s licence was suspended. However, he had dispatch run the tag to be sure. Then he waited. The suspect eventually came out of the gas station and got in his car and drove off. The officer followed him and conducted a traffic stop.
He asked the driver for his license, to which the driver replied he didn’t have it on him.
The officer then told him he knew his license was suspended. That’s when the driver admitted that he had not signed up for a driving class he was required to take from a DUI he got in 2007 in Florida. He said because of this he could not get a South Carolina license.
He was charged with driving under suspension and released.
