A San Bernardino County Supervisor was driving his work-issued vehicle on a suspended license for over four years, according to records, says CBS2. Paul Biane was arrested in Illinois for drunk driving in 2005 on a "a family trip to attend a Notre Dame-University of Southern California football game," and consequently had his license suspended. Biane claims he did not know that the suspension applied to all states; he says he found out about it when he attempted to renew his license in California. The initial suspension was to have lasted just six months, however because Biane managed to not pay a $250 reinstatement fee, it was extended to four years.
