A speeding driver was arrested after his license was suspended due to failure to pay child support.
Timothy Banks, 45, of Belleview, was driving a white Chrysler 300 at about 6 p.m. Wednesday on U.S. 301 in Oxford when he was traveling at 50 miles per hour in a 40 mph zone, according to an arrest report from the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office.
A check revealed the New York native’s driver’s license had been suspended due to his failure to pay child support. Banks had previously been arrested in 2010 in Sumter County on a charge of driving while license suspended.
He was arrested on a charge of driving while license suspended and booked at the Sumter County Detention Center. He was released after booking $1,000 bond.
