A Plymouth man was arrested this week after police discovered he was driving without a license and allowed his 7-year-old son to drive the vehicle.
Wednesday evening at about 7:45 Plymouth Police were dispatched to the area of Sycamore and Sixth Streets for the report of a juvenile driving a vehicle.
Officer Krynock located the suspect vehicle in the area and conducted a traffic stop. The vehicle in question was being driven by Carlos Rodriguez, 38, of Lake Avenue in Plymouth who has never obtained a driver’s license.
While Carlos was driving, he allowed his seven-year-old son to drive the vehicle while his six-year-old son was a passenger in the back seat.
Carlos Rodriquez was lodged in the Marshall County Jail for Operating Without a License and Neglect of a Dependent. His cash bond was paid just before 10 p.m. and he was released.
The jail believes his real name is Guadalup Rivera.
