GULFPORT — Last year a judge declared Randolph Lane Borrow a habitual traffic offender. Borrow proved it again Sunday, police said, when he was arrested on a charge of felony driving with a suspended or revoked license — for the 15th time in 13 years.
In fact, state driving records show that Borrow has received more than 40 traffic citations in the past two decades.
Borrow, 37, was pulled over in his red 2000 Ford F-150 pickup truck in the 4800 block of 22nd Avenue S about 11:12 a.m. because he wasn't wearing his seat belt, according to Gulfport police.
A background check showed that Borrow had 14 prior convictions for driving with a suspended or revoked license: two in 1997, three in 1999, two in 2000, one each in 2002 and 2003, two in 2008, and three in 2009. Also, police said his truck had a temporary tag that expired last year.
During his last conviction, in April 2009, police said, a judge also suspended his driver's license for five years.
Borrow was booked into the Pinellas County jail, where he was being held Monday in lieu of $5,000 bail. He was also cited with driving without his seat belt.
