HAWTHORNE, CA—The Downtown Area Short Hop (DASH) service is not just in downtown Los Angeles, and apparently the drivers are prone to collecting driving violations from a wide variety of Los Angeles County charter cities.
Geno Hall, 22, of West 49th Street in Los Angeles, was picked up by Hawthorne police on Sunday, March 16 at approximately 5 a.m. The public transit driver was picked up near 120th Street and Crenshaw Boulevard for disorderly conduct and obstructing/resisting arrest.
According to Hawthorne PD records, Hall had seven warrants out for a number of driving violations: Driving without a license via the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD), driving while license is suspended as well as driving without a license from L.A. Police Department (LAPD), no front or rear license plates (LAPD), driving without a license (LAPD), driving while license is suspended by Pasadena PD and a failure to appear from the Culver City PD.
Bail for all nine charges was set at $41,809.
The next time you jump on board an L.A. bus, pray you driver has a license.
