Juvenile Arrested By Mike Lakin Even if the youngster had a driver's license, of which there wasn't one, an arrest would have happened anyway. Officer Will Gilmer received a call concerning the driver of a vehicle. Information already received was the youngster had been driving without a license. This was the first that an officer and that driver were at the same place at the same time. Officer Gilmer saw the youngster driving without the required adult accompaniment. After Officer Gilmer activated his emergency lights, the youngster sped up. The youngster made a turn onto Chestnut Street at what Offi- cer Gilmore described as a "high rate of speed". The youngster then turned into the Subway parking lot (conveniently located next to the police station) and tried to hide behind the building. When Officer Gilmore stopped behind the youngster's vehicle he asked him why he'd run. The youngster replied, "Because I don't have a real license and I was driving". The two juvenile passengers in the youngster's vehicle were released to a proper adult. The youngster - of course - could not present a valid license. He was arrested for driving without a valid license and attempting to elude a police officer. The vehicle was towed. After being booked at the jail, the youngster was released to proper adults. Youngster could be looking at not getting a driver's license until an 18th birthday rolls around. Only our individual faith in freedom can keep us free. , Dwight D.
