Oh, Lorain. Our search for entertaining news would be so much less fruitful without you every week. We'll make sure to get you something nice for Christmas to show our thanks for the bounty of misfits and idiotic criminals that call your fine city home.
Misfits like Isidro Casarez.
Casarez, 49, was pulled over Saturday afternoon by police after coppers noticed a gaggle of children sitting on each other's laps in the back of his Chevy Nova.
That was the least of his problems.
According to the Lorain Morning Journal:
An officer noticed several children sitting on each other’s laps in the back of a gray Chevy Nova on West 21st Street around 2:15 p.m. The officer stopped the car outside a home on the 300 block of West 23rd Street and Isidro Casarez, the driver, got out of the car and quickly began walking toward the house.
Casarez told the officer the car belonged to his girlfriend Erma Stinnett and that he did not have a license. The officer later learned Casarez has never had a license and has received 35 previous suspension violations, according to the report.
Casarez was cited for driving under suspension and other traffic violations. Stinnett was also cited for permitting an unlicensed driver to drive.
Over/under February 22, 2011, for Casarez's 37th ticket for driving without a license?
We're taking the under.
