LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky State Police pulled over a Fairdale driver Tuesday afternoon after they say he was caught driving a commercial vehicle without a license -- but police say that's nothing new.
According to an arrest report, 62-year-old Lonnie D. Cole was driving his 1994 Ford Econoline on Poplar Level Road, near Rangeland Road, when he was stopped for a random inspection.
Police say when they approached him, he had bloodshot eyes.
That's when an officer, "initiated a Level 1 North American Driver Vehicle Inspection."
Police say Cole admitted that he takes prescription medication daily for his hands, and that he uses marijuana. They also say he was operating a commercial motor vehicle over 10,000 lbs. without a valid medical examiner's certificate.
Police found something else: according to the arrest report, Cole not only had an invalid driver's license at the time, but also admitted that he "has not had a license since 1995."
He was arrested at the scene and charged with operating a motor vehicle on a suspended or revoked operator's license, operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs and careless driving, according to the arrest report.
