A newspaper reports today that a freshman state representative has been driving on a suspended license in an unregistered car.

The Detroit Free Press says a reporter saw Highland Park Democrat Bert Johnson driving out of a state Capitol parking lot.

He told the newspaper afterward that there's no excuse for his action.

Johnson says he plans to pay off his many fines and seek to get his license back tomorrow.

State records show that the 33-year-old lawmaker has had a suspended license for most of the 18 years that he has been of driving age.

He's had at least 18 moving violations, mostly for speeding, and at least 24 license suspensions.
