Suspended License, No Insurance – Times Two
Lemont police arrested Jeremy Townsend, 22, of the 14000 block of Pulaski Road in Midlothian, at 12:18 a.m., following a traffic stop at Main and Stephen streets. Townsend was charged with driving while his license is suspended and no insurance.
But Townsend apparently didn’t head home to immediately apply for a driver’s license and auto insurance policy. Police arrested him again at 3:56 a.m. at Main and Wheeler streets – on the same charges.
Townsend is scheduled to appear on the charges Jan. 7, at the Bridgeview court house.
Members of the public are reminded that these complaints contain only charges and are not proof of the defendant’s guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial in which it is the government’s burden to prove his or her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
