An unlicensed driver from Mexico was arrested for the second time in Lady Lake.

Samuel Jasso-Torres, 32, of Lady Lake, was driving a black Chrysler SUV on Arlington Avenue at about 10:30 a.m. Sunday when he was caught on radar traveling at 44 miles per hour in a 25 mph zone, according to an arrest report from the Lady Lake Police Department.

During a traffic stop at Jasso-Torres’ home at 246 Arlington Ave., he indicted he speaks little English and handed the officer his Mexican passport. The officer confirmed that Jasso-Torres does not have a driver’s license.

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