Police pulled over Nathan E. Baker, 28, 1689 Bristol Hwy., Elizabethton, around 9:20 a.m. at the intersection of West Main Street and Boone Street, according to a news release.
After checking Baker’s registration, police learned it has been expired for nearly one year, although the tag had an August 2013 sticker on it. Police determined that a fake decal had been put on the tag.
Baker was held in the Washington County Detention Center on a $1,000 bond. Arraignment was set for Thursday in Sessions Court.
Baker is a reporter at the Johnson City Press.
