You can’t fix stupid
PRINCE FREDERICK, MD. — One driver who should have been arrested when first stopped by a trooper was instead given a break and allowed to call someone to drive his vehicle, due to his driver’s license being suspended.
Maryland State Police report that on 7/7/14 at 4:56 pm, Trooper First Class Lewis stopped a vehicle on Rt. 231 and Thoroughbred Dr. for traffic violations. Avon D. Cochran, 23 of Waldorf, was driving on a suspended license. He was advised he could not continue to drive and he agreed to make arrangements for his own disposition. Approximately 5 minutes later, after resuming traffic enforcement, TFC Lewis located Cochran driving on Church St. in Prince Frederick. He was arrested for failing to obey a lawful order. He was incarcerated at the Calvert County Detention Center.
