    This is right , the state is very unhappy because he did not pay to do this. DMV did not get their cut.

    Misleading headline. If he's been selling cars, then he's not posing as a car salesman...he is a car salesman. The headline should have read something like "Car salesman arrested for not paying his licensing fee."

    First of all this all started cause of one dmv man in sampson county didn't like him. Did he sale bad cars no. He just sold to many an did everything the legal way. Never once sold as a dealer. Sold to folks that needed a way to go. This is all for money to give to the state. People is out to try to mess up someone's reputation. But that's not going to happen. Jealous dmv man that started it all. It's bad when the cops said this was nonsense even the magistrate..so folks know the story before u make negative comments about a man that's out to help others.
