Before Friday, Mondrell Green, of Adams Street, had 34 active driver’s license suspensions, and he racked up another when an Elyria police officer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle Green was driving on 15th Street, according to a police report. Green was charged with underage alcohol possession, having an open contained in a motor vehicle and driving under suspension in an incident that started out as a call about a man waving a handgun from the passenger seat of a vehicle.
The call came in around 11:20 p.m., and just as a description of the vehicle came across an Elyria police radio an officer reported seeing a car that fit the description heading west on 15th Street and turn into the driveway of a home. Green was in the driver’s seat, and the officer said he knew from experience that he did not have a driver’s license.
Officers checked the four occupants in the car for warrants, and besides Green’s suspended driver’s license, a second man, Kelvin Lane, 24, of Elyria, was found to have an outstanding warrant through the Elyria Municipal Court for domestic violence. He was subsequently arrested and taken to jail.
