An unlicensed driver from Mexico who admitted he’s been in the United States for five years also confessed that he was aware he needed a license to drive.

Marco Antonio Hernandez, 23, of Plant City, who was born in Mexico City, was driving a beige 2004 GMC Sierra with an inoperable taglight at about 8 p.m. Thursday in Webster when a traffic stop was initiated by a Sumter County sheriff’s deputy.

A bilingual deputy was called to the scene to assist with translation. Hernandez admitted he does not have a driver’s license and was aware he needed one to operate a motor vehicle. He said he has been in the United States for approximately five years.

He was arrested on a charge of driving without a license. He was issued warning for the inoperable taglight. He was booked at the Sumter County Detention Center and released after posting $150 bond.
