8th Offense Driving On Revoked Alleged

A Cookeville man has been charged for the 8th time with driving on a revoked license after a city police officer spotted him travelling down South Willow Avenue. Officer Michael C. Herrick says he had prior knowledge that 53-year-old Ricky Eugene Randolph of Joe Rawlings Road did not have a valid license, but says he confirmed that fact with dispatchers. He then conducted a traffic stop. Herrick says Randolph's license is currently revoked because of a DUI conviction from 1996, although he has been eligible to have it re-instated for some seven years now. Herrick claims he also found marijuana and rolling papers in the vehicle.
