Judge shocked after Michigan man listens to suspended license hearing while driving

WASHTENAW COUNTY, MI – After a man was charged with driving with a suspended license, he virtually appeared in court – while he was driving.

The man attended his hearing via Zoom on May 15 before Judge Cedric Simpson in Washtenaw County 14A District Court.

Upon arriving at the hearing, the 44-year-old man appeared to be driving a vehicle. When Simpson asked defendant if he was driving, defendant responded that he was going to his doctor’s office. The judge then waited for the man to stop and park the vehicle.

“I look at his records and he doesn’t have a license,” Simpson said. “He’s suspended and he’s just driving…”

He took a long pause. “I don’t even know why he would do that.”

Simpson revoked his bond and ordered him to report to the Washtenaw County Jail that day.

“Oh my God,” the man sighs.

His next hearing is scheduled for June 5 at 9 a.m. His lawyer did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
