Man keeps driving despite judge's order, stripped driver's license

It's probably the most basic rule of the road. If you don't have a driver's license, don't drive. Especially when a judge orders you not to.

It is a rule 19 Action News Reporter Paul Orlousky found one driver didn't pay any attention to.

Last Friday, John Stolarski had his driver's license taken away by Judge Kathleen Sutula after a court hearing on his drug arrest. 

After the order, 19 Action News saw Stolarski headed for a parking lot and watched as he got into his car and tried to pull away.

"We were just in court when the judge took your driver's license away," Reporter Paul Orlousky said to Stolarski.

"I gotta take the car home," Stolarski replied.

"I know that, but you don't have a driver's license," Orlousky said.

Stolarski is in no way the only person who has had his license taken away in court, walked out of the building, across the street to his car, gotten in and driven away. It's just an example that points out how difficult it is to keep drivers with suspended licenses off the road.

"I don't know what to do man, I gotta call somebody I guess to get the car outta here," Stolarski said.

In just ten minutes, Stolarski was back behind the wheel driving away, thumbing his nose at the judge. The next morning and within 10 minutes, 19 Action News found Stolarski behind the wheel driving - again. 

"I understand you've got problems, but an order's an order," Orlousky said to Stolarski.

"I know," Stolarski said.

He keeps saying that and keeps driving.

Now, it's up to Judge Sutula.
