Republican North Carolina Rep. Madison Cawthorn was recently charged in his home state with driving with a revoked license, which carries a maximum of 20 days in jail.
Cawthorn was pulled over by North Carolina state highway patrol March 3 in Cleveland County, North Carolina, Traffic Court records show. He was previously charged with the same offense in 2017, the Asheville Citizen Times reported, although that charge was dismissed. Driving with a revoked license is a Class 3 misdemeanor in North Carolina, and defendants can face fines of up to $200, in addition to the potential jail sentence.
The congressman was “polite and cooperative” during the stop, the state trooper who pulled him over noted in the citation.
Cawthorn also has two traffic tickets for speeding currently outstanding, court records show. He will appear in court in April and May to face the charges.
