A man with with a Mexican driver’s license was arrested after a traffic stop at Darrell’s Diner on U.S. 301 in Wildwood.
Ismael Linares Salas, 49, was driving a Ford F-150 pickup at about 6:30 a.m. Saturday when he was driving well below the speed limit, forcing other drivers to go around him, according to an arrest report from the Wildwood Police Department. During a traffic stop at Darrell’s Diner, Salas offered the police officer a Mexican consular identification and a Mexican driver’s license. The officer ran a check and found that Salas had been issued a Florida driver’s license in 2005 after an arrest for driving under the influence.
He was arrested on a charge of driving while license suspended, because he had been issued a driver’s license after the 2005 arrest and that license was subsequently suspended.
Salas was booked at the Sumter County Detention Center and released after posting $1,000 bond.
