Councilman Drove Sans License, for 25 Years
A Philadelphia city councilman who drove without a license for 25 years has been issued seven citations, one for each time a television crew videotaped him at the wheel.
If Angel Ortiz pleads guilty, the license he finally got this month after he was caught by Fox News affiliate WTXF-TV Channel 29 will be suspended for three years.
Each charge is punishable by a $200 fine.
Ortiz admitted that he never bothered to get a Pennsylvania license when he moved from New York in 1976.
