While making a random auto registration query, a Somerville Police unit discovered that the car in question’s registered owner had a suspended license.
The car was stopped on Broadway, near Fenwick Street, and the vehicle’s driver was asked for her license.
The driver, later identified as Nicola Clark, 45, of Mattapan, reportedly told police that she had no license, offered a false name (Chigitia Diggs), and further gave two separate Social Security numbers that matched no database query.
Based on the fact that the driver was unlicensed, she was placed under arrest and charged with driving with a revoked license and giving a false name.
It was later discovered that the actual registered owner of the car, whose license status is revoked and unrenewable, also had the name of Nicola Clark.
The owner of the car will be issued a citation for allowing an unlicensed operator to drive it.
