City Council Candidate Addresses Traffic Ticket Troubles
Charlottesville City Council candidate Wes Bellamy wants to set the record straight over the controversy surrounding his traffic ticket.
Bellamy called a press conference Wednesday afternoon where he told reporters the whole thing was based on a court error.
He confirmed he received a traffic ticket in February, but asked for a continuance from his initial court date. Bellamy checked on his case Monday and noticed he had "a failure to appear" on his record.
"And I then called the clerk to verify. I was informed that a warrant was issued and paperwork was sent, however the Court had the wrong address on file. I had never received it. I currently live at 1002 Linden Avenue, however the paperwork was sent to 1007 Linden Avenue," Bellamy said.
Bellamy will have a court date in April. He says this will not stop his plans to run for City Council.
