A Villager’s “problem child” landed in jail after she was caught at the wheel of her mother’s car.
Lyn Ellen Kaminski, 60, of the Village of Silver Lake, was driving a silver Toyota passenger car at 3:46 p.m. Monday southbound on U.S. Hwy. 27/441 when she was pulled over for not having a valid registration, according to an arrest report from the Fruitland Park Police Department. The registration had expired in 2021. She also had no proof of insurance.
A check revealed Kaminski’s license has been permanently revoked for multiple convictions for driving under the influence.
In 2016, Kaminski beat a DUI conviction after hitting a power pole on Griffin Avenue. She was suspected driving drunk and was taken to the hospital in Leesburg to be checked out. She fled the ER with an IV in her arm. The prosecutor’s office eventually dropped the case. At the time, Kaminski’s mother described her to police as her “problem child.”
Kaminski is currently on probation. At the time of the traffic stop on Monday in Fruitland Park, a cut straw with the residue of heroin was found in her purse.
The Cleveland, Ohio native was arrested on charges of driving while license revoked and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was booked at the Lake County Jail and released after posting $11,000 bond.
