An unlicensed driver from Mexico was arrested on the Florida Turnpike in Wildwood.

Luis Antonio Morales, 41, of Mascotte, was driving a silver Nissan Titan pickup northbound at Mile Marker 306.5 at about 6:30 a.m. Monday when he was pulled over for a non-functioning tailight, according to an arrest report from the Florida Highway Patrol.

The report noted that Morales does not speak English and does not have a driver’s license.

There is also a driving under the influence case pending against Morales in Lake County. In that 2020 crash, Morales was driving without a license and without insurance, according to an arrest report from the Mascotte Police Department. He had provided breath samples that registered .221 and .236 blood alcohol content.

As a result of his arrest on the turnpike, Morales was arrested on a charge of driving without a license. He was booked at the Sumter County Detention Center on $12,000 bond.
