Man without license arrested for restraining order violation after car crash


What began as a response to a minor accident results in the arrest of one of the drivers.

Police say the collision happened at 5:23 p.m. on Thursday, in the intersection of 20th Street and Broadway Ave. South. 

The damage was minor, but officers discovered that Timothy Alvis Gayles senior did not have a legal driver's license. 

It was revoked after his driving was determined to be inimical to public safety.

However, that didn't stop Gayles from getting behind the wheel in the aftermath of a winter storm.

A 61-year-old female passenger was also in Gayles' car... and records showed that she had a domestic abuse no contact order filed against him.

Due to his prior convictions, Gayles is being held in custody pending a felony charge of violating the domestic abuse no contact order.

Police say he could also be charged with driving after cancellation, which is a gross misdemeanor
