RIVERSIDE, Ill. -- Alfredo Luna, 62, was arrested for the 22nd time for driving on a revoked license after he was stopped for speeding in west suburban Riverside on Wednesday.

A police officer pulled Luna over in the 3500-block of South Harlem Avenue around 8:40 a.m. Wednesday after his 2002 Acura was clocked traveling 56 miles per hour in a 30 mph zone.

When the officer asked to see Luna's driver's license, he said he didn't have one. The officer checked Luna's driving record, which showed that his license was revoked in 2003 after a series of DUI convictions.

Since then, Luna was arrested 21 times for driving on a suspended or revoked license. Wednesday's arrest made it 22. Riverside police seized his car.

Luna, of the 2500-block of North Newland Avenue in Chicago, was charged with felony aggravated driving on a revoked license, aggravated speeding and driving without car insurance.

Riverside Police Chief Thomas Weitzel said Luna "has no regard for Illinois traffic laws" and said they are filing a civil action to try to make sure he will not be able to drive the Acura anymore.
