Wildwood police arrested a woman who put a “friend’s” license plate on her vehicle.
Shenia Victoria Nelson, 38, of Port Charlotte, was driving a 1999 Ford Explore at 10:48 a.m. Monday on U.S. 301 with a license plate that had been assigned to a 2007 Chrysler passenger car, according to an arrest report from the Wildwood Police Department. Nelson was pulled over in the parking lot of a Circle K convenience store.
Nelson said the license plate belonged to a friend. She also admitted her driver’s license was suspended. A check revealed multiple suspensions of Nelson’s driver’s license due to failure to pay traffic fines.
Nelson was arrested on a charge of driving while license suspended and booked at the Sumter County Detention Center. She was released after posting $500 bond.
