ELIZABETHTON — A Carter County deputy said he arrested a man on a 10th offense of driving on a revoked license after he noticed the man driving a motorcycle without a helmet.
Randy Robinson, 55, 119 Landfill Road, was arrested on a charge of 10th offense driving on a revoked license and a violation of the helmet law. Robinson is scheduled to appear in Sessions Court on Sept. 2.
