A Lady Lake man with a suspended driver’s license was arrested with marijuana after he was spotted driving without a seatbelt.
Robert Allen Carrier, 35, was at the wheel of a blue 2001 Ford Explorer at 6:48 p.m. Sunday on Grays Airport Road when a Lake County sheriff’s deputy noticed he was not wearing a seatbelt. During a traffic stop, he appeared “visibly nervous,” according to an arrest report.
A computer check revealed Carrier’s driver’s license has been suspended and he has four previous convictions for driving while license suspended. Carrier appeared to have a bulge in his pocket and it turned out to be a bag containing marijuana.
Carrier was arrested on charges of driving while license suspended and possession of marijuana. He was also ticketed for failure to wear a seatbelt. The Fort Lauderdale native was booked at the Lake County Jail and released after posting $3,000 bond.
