Councilman Drove Sans License, for 25 Years

November 28, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

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.
