After realizing that it was the same vehicle as I cited earlier, I pulled over into BJ’s Food Mart to talk to the driver. After running the driver [information] through the 911 center, his license came back suspended. The driver, Mr. Wesley Guffey, admitted to driving the vehicle to BJ’s Food Mart. Mr. Guffey was then taken into custody at 6:30 p.m. and transported to the jail.,” Hemm reported.
