It aint that hard...  Murphy got arrested near USF for driving without one.  Hopefully coach Holtz can setup some kind of seminar put on by DMV about how to get your license!

Unless it's "random" (like a checkpoint) or they have reason to suspect the driver has a history of driving without a license or with a suspended one, I think that would be illegal. I think either Murphy had previous issues we didn't hear about or he was stopped for some other offense.

Wonder if Jerome was maybe driving a flashy new Cadillac or something bought with his new bonus money, and driving around creating a traffic hazard driving with his grills on?  Getting locked up for the stop seems extreme, he maybe smarted off or had something hanging.  I like how on the arrest record the sheriff's office has Jerome's name suffix as LEE, like Jerome's name is Jerome Douglas Murphy the fiftieth something.

The law on this issue is about intent. If you are driving around with a suspended license but the officer is convinced you didn't know it was suspended, it is a ticket. If you know, it is a criminal offense. In this case, considering it's not a suspension but lack of "a valid drivers license," I don't think Murphy could really claim he didn't know.

As for whether or not it is "extreme" - *I* sure don't want a bunch of unlicensed drivers on the road. That is a major safety hazard.

We need to open a USF Football driving school, so that they all can get a drivers license.

Unique idea guys, did you ever consider the possibility that it was expired.  He was arrested for driving without a VALID drivers license, not arrested for driving with a suspended one.

Maybe Jerome's license had expired at a birthday and Jerome forgot about renewing, or maybe Jerome hadn't paid a past traffic ticket and the license was suspended without him knowing, hence no valid drivers license.  He might have had a license in his wallet that looked valid, but was actually not valid unbeknownst to even Jerome.  The whole episode should be able to be cleaned up with no problem.  The problem with too many of USF's athletes it seems in recent years is that the guys let little problems fester into bigger problems by not doing doing what they need to do to remedy things.

This is all Leavitt's fault.  You have not seen any of Holtz's boys get in this kind of trouble.  CJL just had a lawless streak that permeated the players.  Look at our record on personal fouls....

JK.

    With the climate going on in NCAA athletics, you’re either moving forward at a hard pace or you’re not. I think what intrigued me the most is they’re very determined to become a big player nationally.
