WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- White Plains police say they discovered a taxi driver cruising around with a suspended license at 5:00 a.m. Tuesday.
Officers say they pulled over Bernardo Pelaez, 51, of White Plains, because one of the headlights on his 2008 Toyota Camry was blown out.
His license was suspended because of a failure to answer summons out of White Plains and Greenburgh, according to police.
Bernardo was given two traffic tickets at headquarters and charged with third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, a misdemeanor.
A couple of hours earlier, police charged a truck driver with the same crime. Police say Jo Hernandez, 22, of New York City, caught their attention after failing to turn right in a right-only lane on Main Street.
They stopped his black 2006 Honda and discovered his license had been suspended for failing to pay a fine and failing to answer authorities.
Hernandez was arrested Tuesday evening, issued two parking tickets and charged with third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, a misdemeanor.
