A Lady Lake man was jailed after he was caught driving on a license with multiple suspensions.

Thomas Patrick Rutig, 53, of 206 Hawthorne Ave., at 9:14 p.m. Thursday was at the wheel of a pickup that did not have any lights illuminating the rear license plate, according to an arrest report from the Lady Lake Police Department.

He provided a police officer with his driver’s license, but a check revealed multiple suspensions and incidents in which he had been cited for driving on a suspended license, dating back to 1999 and as recently as 2017.

The lawn service worker was booked at the Lake County Jail on $5,000 bond.
