“Sovereign citizen” arrested for giving false name to law enforcement and driving without a license


GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Krystopher James Mannas, 22, was arrested yesterday afternoon and charged with giving a false name to law enforcement and driving without a valid license.

A Gainesville Police Department officer pulled Mannas over at 3:30 p.m. because there was reportedly no visible tag on his car. The officer wrote that she saw a “sovereign citizen” tag on the back left side of the vehicle, and Mannas reportedly confirmed that was the tag for his vehicle. He also reportedly said he did not have any identification with him and that he did not have a driver’s license. He also allegedly provided a name that is not his legal name and then refused to provide any more information.

The officer was able to identify Mannas with the car’s registration papers, which were in the glove box. The officer also found that he had a suspended driver’s license and an active warrant for failure to appear on a previous charge of driving with a suspended license.

Judge Susan Miller-Jones set bail at $1,050 on the new charges and $2,000 on the failure to appear charge.

Articles about arrests are based on reports from law enforcement agencies. The charges listed are taken from the arrest report and/or court records and are only accusations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
