Fabers Road resident Rasheed “Fresh” Pollard, 23, will not be allowed to apply for a driver’s license for a year because of his reckless driving on Sunday, December 27, that could have had a tragic end. Police say that they visited an area in front of the Michael Finnegan Market on West Collect Canal early Sunday morning, December 27, and found a grey 2007 Dodge SUV in the middle of the road with its wheels in the air. According to reports, the Dodge was being driven by Pollard and it flipped when he collided into a vehicle that was parked in the area.

Pollard appeared before Magistrate Deborah Rogers on Monday, December 28, to answer to two traffic offenses, driving a motor vehicle without due care and attention and failure to provide a urine sample so police could verify the alcohol concentration in his blood. Pollard pleaded guilty to both charges. Magistrate Rogers ordered that his license be suspended for a year for the charge of driving without due care and attention. She also fined him $250 for failure to provide specimen. Pollard has until January 29, 2015 to pay the fine or serve two months imprisonment.

Magistrate Rogers explained to him that after three months he can apply to the court to get back his license but for now he cannot drive or hold a drivers license. If caught driving, he can go to jail for six months.
