Should a suspended license be an impediment to a new car purchase?
One Chicago woman thought her inability to drive legally should not stop her from buying a new car. So, she allegedly used a fake license to try to purchase a vehicle.
A woman was so interested in a car, she declined the salesman’s offer for a test ride and instead wanted to make the purchase. The woman provided the salesman at the CarMax a license with the name Shatrice Cobb, even though that isn’t her name.
CarMax apparently has a way of checking whether licenses are valid and noticed it was missing some information. CarMax suspected that the license provided was “fake”. CarMax then called the Oak Lawn police for verification and waited the officer’s arrival. The woman became agitated that the process was taking so long and decided to leave.
When police arrived, CarMax employees pointed out the woman who had not drifted away too far. The woman began to walk away and the police announced themselves and told her to stop. She refused, so they chased her down and placed her in handcuffs.
The woman was identified as Dothia Davis, who had her own story that she allegedly provide to police. Davis claimed that she had gone to get a driver’s license and had her photo taken. She allegedly claimed that the license she provided to CarMax was fake but that she provided it because she doesn’t have good credit. Davis, a 27 year old black female, was charged with felony possession of fraudulent identification and obstructing justice. She provided a Chicago address to the police.
