Failure to turn on lights leads to time in jail

A man pulled over after he passed a police car without his headlights on will serve 90 days for driving on a revoked license and even more time for violating his probation.
The man, Terry Lee York Jr., 23, entered guilty pleas before Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to charges of driving on a revoked license, evading arrest and violation of probation. He was directed to serve 90 days of an 11-month, 29-day sentence on the pair of misdemeanors. He must serve the balance of his former sentence for violating his probation on his prior conviction for facilitating the manufacture of meth.
York caught the attention of McMinnville policewoman Rachel Harrell when she passed his Chevrolet on a night in May and noticed he did not have his headlights on. The vehicle was traveling away from Smithville Highway when she fell in behind it, trying to get the driver to pull over.
However, York stuck his arm out the window and motioned for the officer to follow him, winding around side streets until he reached Westside Manor and pulled over.
It was there the officer found out York was driving on a revoked license, his privileges stripped in 2010 for failing to satisfy traffic citations.
