WARSAW – A 26-year-old Batavia man arrested by state police for speeding Monday in the Town of Covington was found to be illegally driving with a license suspended because he had ignored traffic charges eight prior times in recent years, officers said.

Jason A. Barnhart was pulled over on State Route 245 after he was reportedly clocked driving southbound up to 73 MPH in a 55 MPH Zone. He was charged with speeding and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle. He faces further proceedings in Covington Town Court in several weeks.
