(April 12, 2019) A 48-year-old man whose license remains suspended after an incident more than 10 years ago was arrested last Thursday after police spotted him driving.
Charles Albert Wagner, of Salisbury, was charged with driving with a suspended license, driving an uninsured vehicle and driving or attempting to drive a vehicle without a license or registration.
Police said a license plate reader on the Route 50 bridge flagged a red GMC van with a suspended registration coming into town at 6:39 a.m. Police then found the registration had been suspended on Jan. 4 for an insurance violation.
After police stopped the car on Philadelphia Avenue, Wagner allegedly said his license was expired, but police found that it had been suspended since Feb. 19, 2008 for a “hit-and-run-related charge.”
According to the police report, Wagner said his license was suspended in 2008 after he was charged with driving under the influence, and added his license was recently suspended due to failure to make child support payments.
Wagner was released on his own recognizance on April 4, according to court documents.
