After being pulled over, Stringer told Officer King that his license was revoked for DUI. His registration was wrong. It actually belonged on another vehicle. Stringer also did not have proof of insurance. He was cited for violation of registration and financial responsibility. His vehicle was seized after a computer check revealed his license was revoked for an earlier DUI. Stringer's bond was set at $7,000 and he is to appear in General Sessions Court November 19th.
