An unrestrained toddler standing in the backseat of a moving car prompted a Wildwood police officer to take action.
After stopping 20-year-old Mia Victoria Kizer’s blue 2006 Hyundai Elantra on East Gulf Atlantic Highway, the officer discovered that an infant wasn’t restrained, the license tag didn’t belong to the vehicle and the decal sticker wasn’t assigned to the license plate. The police report added that the car hadn’t been registered “for quite some time.”
Kizer, who lives at 9302 SE Maricamp Road in Ocala, told the officer that she couldn’t register the vehicle when she purchased it because her driver’s license was suspended. She also claimed that a friend put the license plate on the car and she wasn’t aware it didn’t belong to it.
Kizer was arrested and transported to the Sumter County Detention Center. She was charged with failure to register a motor vehicle and was released on $1,000 bond early Thursday morning.
