'I Ain't Gonna Lie, My License Ain't Good,' Habitual Traffic Violator Tells Deputy
The man, who was identified as a habitual traffic violator in 2009, was not supposed to be back on the road till 2022.
His tag was expired and his license had been revoked, but that didn't keep Adam Kareame St. Valle off the roads.
Now the New Port Richey man faces a felony charge after he was pulled over as he left a McDonald's parking lot Thursday.
According to a Pasco County complaint affidavit, a deputy observed that the tag on St. Valle's vehicle had expired in May. During the traffic stop, St. Valle gave the deputy a Florida identification card.
"I ain't gonna lie, my license ain't good," St. Valle told the deputy, according to the report.
A check revealed St. Valle had been identified as a habitual traffic violator and his license was revoked for five years on Sept. 16, 2009, and on that same day, the revocation had been extended an additional seven years, according to the report.
The reasons for revocation included Chapter 893 (controlled substances conviction) and DUI, the report stated.
St. Valle of 5432 Cheri Court, No. 211, in New Port Richey was arrested and charged with felony driving with a suspended license/habitual traffic violator. He remained in the Land O' Lakes jail on Friday in lieu of $5,000 bond.
