Asleep at Wheel without a License; the Man Awoke to an Officer Turning off the Ignition, Reports Say


When you don't have a driver's license, it's a bad idea to park in the middle of the road and then go to sleep at the wheel.

That's a lesson Alfred Erenest Silva, 45, learned early Friday morning.

Jacksonville patrolman L.C. Miller reported that he found Silva asleep at the wheel of his 1999 Buick Regal in the middle of the 600 block of Ivy Street, with the engine running.

When Miller reached in and turned the car off, he reported, Silva woke up and said, "I'm out on bond for driving without my license."

In addition to being arrested and taken to jail on the charge of being a habitual traffic offender driving on a suspended or revoked license, Miller charged Silva with operating a motor vehicle without using his seat belt.
