Westlake Police: Burnt Headlight Reveals Six Active Warrants

In a case of law enforcement irony, it was a burnt out headline that shed light on six active warrants leading to the arrest of 21-year old Cleveland man.

According to police, the burnt out headlight was the cause of the 21-year-old Cleveland man having his 6 active warrants served on him at 4:06 AM on March 4 as he drove along Detroit Rd. He also lacks a valid driver’s license; his shoeless female passenger (19 yoa Cleveland woman) was arrested for Underage Consumption and Open Container.
