A teen without a license was arrested after he was caught on radar driving at 112 miles per hour on Interstate 75 in Sumter County.
Angel Elian Zavala, 18, of Wimauma, was at the wheel of a white Dodge Challenger at 2:04 a.m. Saturday southbound on I-75 near Mile Marker 312 when he was caught driving at the excessive speed by a Florida Highway Patrol trooper.
During a traffic stop, it was determined that Zavala, who does not speak English, does not have a driver’s license, according to the arrest report. A licensed driver who was riding as a passenger said he had allowed Zavala to drive, even though he knew Zavala did not have a license. The passenger said he had chosen to do so because he was “tired.”
Zavala was arrested on a charge of driving without a license. He was booked at the Sumter County Detention Center and released after posting $250. The passenger was issued a notice to appear for allowing an unlicensed driver to operate a vehicle.
