With No License, Man Squeals Tires In Front Of Cop

A Summerville man without a driver’s license was arrested Friday night after squealing his tires in front of a Chattooga County Sheriff’s deputy.

The deputy was sitting at the intersection of Hwy. 48 and Dogwood Circle, when a blue 1998 Ford Escort came by squealing its tires. The deputy promptly stopped the car and talked with driver Brian Ezell.

“I explained to the driver of the vehicle that I stopped him due to the squealing of the tires. I then asked the driver for his driver’s license. The driver advised that he did not have a valid drivers license and he was suspended,” Deputy David King stated.

The deputy then checked with 911 and discovered Ezell had a warrant for his arrest as well as having multiple suspensions of his driver’s license.

“I questioned Mr. Ezell about the vehicle and the tag. Mr. Ezell stated the vehicle belonged to his sister and he removed the tag from his daughter’s wrecked vehicle and placed on the vehicle,” Deputy King stated.

Ezell was arrested for laying drags, driving with the wrong tag and driving with a revoked or suspended driver’s license.
