Unlicensed driver, 14, cited for property damage, driving erratically in Portsmouth


PORTSMOUTH - Erratic driving and property damage led to the arrest of a 14-year-old early Monday morning for driving without a license.

Portsmouth Police Sgt. John Peracchi said police received a call around 3 a.m. Monday reporting a pick-up truck with a yellow light bar driving erratically on Lafayette Road and doing burnouts in the street.

The pick-up truck also drove through a fence in the Phillips 66 parking lot.

Staff at the gas station were able to get a description of the truck, which led police to the 14-year-old driver, police said.

The minor was arrested, and the case will be handled in juvenile court.

Peracchi said there are myriad concerns with such a young driver on the street, including lack of experience, no official training and the fact that, unfortunately, there are a lot of impaired drivers on the road at that hour.

Christie is the real deal

We have found Gov. Chris Christie to be the most consistent, the most confident in his abilities, the most tested under fire, and the most likely to regain the White House from a disastrous Democratic regime.
