A Leesburg man previously convicted of drunk driving was arrested  for driving while his license was suspended.

A Eustis police officer on Nov. 24 was on patrol on County Road 44 when he clocked a Jeep driving 47 miles per hour in a 30 mph speed zone. The officer put on his emergency lights and stopped the Jeep.

When the officer made contact with the driver, 34-year-old Joshua Anthony Payne, and asked for his driver’s license Payne handed the officer his passport. A records check showed Payne’s license had been suspended for six months, effective on Oct. 3 as a result of a driving under the influence conviction.

Payne was placed under arrest for driving while his license was suspended due to the DUI. Bond was set at the Lake County Jail at $10,000.
