An unlicensed driver from El Salvador was arrested at Buffalo Ridge Plaza in The Villages.

Jose Manuel Ramirez Gutierrez, 24, of Summerfield, was driving a red GMC pickup shortly before 9 p.m. Thursday at the shopping plaza when a Sumter County sheriff’s deputy noticed that the pickup had inoperable tag lights.

During a traffic stop, Ramirez Gutierrez handed the deputy his El Salvador passport and admitted he does not have a driver’s license. A check confirmed he does not have a driver’s license in any state in the United States.

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