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.
