An unlicensed driver from Venezuela was arrested in a vehicle with an expired registration.

During a traffic stop, the native of Venezuela admitted he has been living in Ocala for two years and said he has been “working on getting his documents to obtain a valid license,” according to an arrest report from the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office.

He was arrested on a charge of operating a vehicle without a valid driver’s license. He was booked at the Sumter County Detention Center and released after posting $150 bond.
