An unlicensed driver with a Nicaraguan passport was arrested after running a stop sign.

Luis David Vallejos, 29, of Leesburg, was driving a silver Ford Focus at about 1 p.m. Saturday when he failed to come to a complete stop at a stop sign at North Stokes Street and East Warm Springs Avenue in Coleman, according to an arrest report from the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office.

During a traffic stop, Vallejos presented the deputy with a Nicaraguan passport. A computer check confirmed that Vallejos has never been issued a driver’s license in the United States.

He was arrested on a charge of driving without a license. He was booked at the Sumter County Detention Center and released after posting $500 bond.
