A local driver is facing multiple charges following a traffic stop by a West Virginia State Trooper on road patrol.


According to the criminal complaint, Nicky Allen Wakefield, 39, of Big Creek, was driving along Rt. 3 on March 3, 2013, when the officer observed his 1994 Ford Explorer operating with an expired as of September 2011 Motor Vehicle Inspection sticker.


The officer initiated a traffic stop and Wakefield was unable to provide proof of registration or proof of insurance. The officer also noticed that Wakefield was not wearing a seat belt and that three small children in the back of the vehicle were not in safety seats.


A license check revealed that Wakefield’s driving license had been revoked for DUI. A registration check revealed that the license plate was on a wrong vehicle and a license check by VIN showed no matching record. The officer then performed a post arrest search of Wakefield and found a prescription bottle allegedly filled with eight and one-half Xanex pills. The prescription on the bottle was not for Xanax.


Wakefield was charged with driver’s license revoked for DUI, no insurance, improper registration, possession of a controlled substance, no motor vehicle inspection, no seat belt and three counts of no child restraints. Wakefield was arraigned on August 14 and his bail was set at $2,500.
