Motorist arrested on warrant, traffic charges

Louisiana Tech Police arrested a Gonzales man last Monday night after he was stopped for driving with no headlights.

A Tech officer was running radar on Tech Drive when a Dodge Challenger was seen southbound without its headlights on. The vehicle was stopped on West Alabama Avenue. The driver, Javon J. Carter, 21, of Gonzales, could not produce a driver’s license and a records check showed his Louisiana license was under suspension and the vehicle’s registration was expired.

A warrant for Carter’s arrest was found through the city of Ruston. Carter was arrested and booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for driving under suspension, driving with no headlights, expired vehicle registration, and the city of Ruston failure to appear on a driving under suspension charge.

Bail was set at $2,000.
