OK, I have issue with this article. It is based on something that happened to "a naval officer". No name given. I don't like articles based on something that hapeened to an anonymous person.

With that said, the naval officer raised some red flags. First he had expired tags. Add to that, they were out of state expired tags. The throw in that his driver's license was from a different state than his vehicle was registered in. Also, I am sure he wasn't running down to the restuarant in uniform so the fact that he was a naval officer is irrelevant to the situation. In this day and age of terrorism, he is a suspect.

The whole thing seems blown entirely out of proportion, to me. Although, I could see an arrest being justified if he were a repeat offender for this sort of thing.

I think Ohio has the same penalties...
