By Mike Laki~ OChief Lynn Freer routinely ran a license plate that came back showing the registered owner had a suspended driver's license. He observed the Mt. Pulaski resi- dent putting sacked items into the front passenge seat. Asked for her drivers license and proof of insurance, she provided a valid insurance card but stated that she knew-her license was suspended. Asked why she would be driving on a suspended drivers license she stated, "I thought it would be alright." She stated that she had just pur- chased some items for her boyfriend and was trying to locate him among the cornfields along the highway. She said that he was "on the run because of a warrant" and was "hiding out in the cornfield" because a Logan County Deputy was looking for him. She said she was only driving in order to find her boyfriend and asked for a break. No break, the driver was taken into custody and transported to the Logan County Jail where she was issued a citation for driving suspended. Sec- retary of State records showed the driver's suspension had been in effect since September 20, 2007. She had one previous conviction for driving while suspended.
