It's illegal and wrong to drive with a suspended license. That being said, more than a few unlicensed wayfarers travel our roads each day with fingers crossed, hoping to make it to their destination and back without drawing the attention of Johnnie Law.
Of course, some are not so lucky.
Ryan Williams, a 40-year-old Sandusky man is one example. He was nabbed Friday for driving under suspension when cops pulled him over for wheeling about without headlights, according to the Sandusky Register.
But the cops, they weren't that bad. In fact, once they handed over the ticket, they helped Williams push his Mustang into a parking lot before he walked home.
End of story, right? He got caught, car is stuck, oh well.
Not so fast. This unlicensed driver has balls of steel. Or a complete lack of short-term memory. One or the other.
About an hour later, officers passed by the bowling alley and saw Williams pulling the Mustang out of the parking lot.
“Ryan said he thought he could drive the vehicle home without being caught,” a second police report said. This time, cops had the car towed.
When all was said and done, police offered Williams a ride home.
According to the report, he opted to walk.
There's long been a "Lorain" tag here to collect all the bizarre and unbelievable stories emanating from that exotic city. It's getting to the point where we'll need one for Sandusky as well.
