The court video of a US man about a driving offense went viral. He’s now in more trouble.

PITTSFIELD TWP, Michigan: An arrest was made on June 5, for the same driving offense committed years ago in another community.

The man was at a court near Ann Arbor, Michigan for a hearing to follow up on a charge for driving with a suspension of licence. Judge J. Cedric Simpson informed him that a warrant had been issued for his arrest from 2015 in Allen Park.

A court officer took the man to jail.

“Wow. “Was I shocked?” “Absolutely,” said Dionne Webster Cox, the defence attorney outside court.

Last week, a video of Simpson’s May 15 court appearance became a viral sensation on the Internet.

He was charged with driving while his licence had been suspended. The man appeared via video, which is a standard practice in court, even since the Covid-19 pandemic.

I’m driving into my doctor’s clinic. The man said to the judge, “Just give me a second.”

Simpson was shocked to see a driver with a suspended license driving during a hearing. The man was ordered to appear in the Washtenaw County Jail that evening after he revoked his bond. The man was detained for two days.

The judge clarified on June 5, that the suspension of the driver’s licence had never been lifted. This was in response to news reports which suggested that the man may have been a victim due to government incompetence.

Simpson stated that “he has never held a driving licence.”

The Michigan Secretary of State, who issues licenses, confirmed that the judge was right.

Webster-Cox’s goal, she said, is to clear up the court cases and make the man eligible for driving.

“I cannot change the past. “At the end of it all, you have to take care of your own business,” she said. – AP
