Man pulled over had 77 license suspensions, police report

LIVONIA, MICH. - Having his license suspended was something one 33-year-old Detroit man apparently heard before he was pulled over by Livonia police back on June 27.

In fact, he had heard it about 77 times, police say.

Police say the man was driving his vehicle near the intersection of Plymouth and Merriman when police initiated a traffic stop. After speaking to the driver, police learned he did not have a valid driver's license and asked him to step out of his vehicle.

He was originally arrested for driving without a valid license. After police ran his information, they found out the man had his license suspended 77 times by the Secretary of State's office and had 12 convictions under the Michigan Vehicle Code 257.904, a number police say is fairly high.

The vehicle did not have a valid plate registered to it and the plate on the car was confiscated, police said. The vehicle was later impounded.

The man was arrested for driving while license suspended and taken to the Livonia police station for processing. The passenger in the vehicle was also arrested, as a check by police saw he had several traffic warrants out of Dearborn, police said. He was later released and driven by police to the area of Merriman and Joy.
