Ocala man nabbed again for driving with suspended license

Luis Daniel Ramirez

An Ocala man with two previous convictions for driving with a suspended license was charged with it again after being pulled over for having the wrong license plate on his vehicle.

At around 10:30 p.m. Thursday, a Marion County sheriff’s deputy observed a yellow Nissan SUV driving westbound on SW 95th Street with no license plate lights illuminated. The deputy ran the license plate number and it came back for a grey 2009 Honda sedan, according to the sheriff’s office report.

The deputy conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle in the 5200 block of SW 95th Street and spoke with the driver, Luis Daniel Ramirez, 39, of 14537 SW 45th Circle. When asked for his license and registration, Ramirez said the vehicle wasn’t registered because he just bought it two days earlier. He also said his license is suspended for DUI and handed the deputy his Florida ID card, the report said.

Several records checks confirmed Martinez’s license is currently suspended and showed he was previously convicted for knowingly driving with a suspended license in 2003 and 2007, according to the report.

Martinez was charged with driving with a suspended license (third or subsequent offense) and taken to the Marion County Jail. He was released Saturday on $1,000 bond and will appear in Marion County Court on July 28.
