A man was charged for numerous traffic violations early Sunday morning after a Senoia Police officer found him driving around in a four-wheeler without headlights, according to Senoia authorities.
Around 12:15 a.m. an officer was patrolling the area of Travis Street when he saw a man driving around in a four-wheeler, said Maj. Steve Tomlin with the Senoia Police Department. Because the four-wheeler did not have its headlights turned on, the officer stopped the man, identified as Tony Norris, 21, and found he did not have a driver’s license, Tomlin said.
Norris was arrested and charged with multiple traffic offenses, Tomlin said, including: driving without headlights, driving without a license, driving on wrong side of road, no proof of insurance, no registration or valid tag, failure to maintain lane, seat belt violation, no protective headgear, and driving with defective equipment.
“Although Senoia does have a local ordinance allowing golf carts and other specified motorized vehicles to be driven on city roadways, the operator must still abide by Georgia laws and must be registered through the city of Senoia,” Tomlin said.
On top of this, the officer searched the four-wheeler and found some clear plastic baggies containing suspected methamphetamine, Tomlin said. A blue pouch containing needles, a spoon and some cotton swabs was also found. Norris was additionally charged for the possession of methamphetamine and was transported to the Coweta County Jail.
