WEST MELBOURNE, Florida – When officers tried to make a traffic stop on a vehicle that went through a stop sign, the driver kept going because “she was coming home,” according to the West Melbourne Police Department.

Allison Nicole Douglass eventually pulled over for police after continuing down the road a for a few blocks, reports show.

When the West Melbourne police officer asked Douglass for her driver’s license, her response made him suspicious.

“She told me she didn’t have her license because she changed at the Gator’s game,” the officer said. When asked why she delayed pulling the vehicle over during the traffic stop, Douglass said she “didn’t stop because she was coming home,” the affidavit said.

Police soon found out that Douglass’ driver’s license was suspended in 2016. She told the officer that it was for unpaid tickets, but didn’t know for sure “because she doesn’t read the tickets,” the affidavit said.

Douglass also told West Melbourne police that although her license was suspended for failure to pay the tickets, she “has not been pulled over since,” according to the officer’s report.
