Thompson’s license was suspended in January after failing to pay for a previous speeding ticket, The Wichita Eagle reported Monday. But the Wichita attorney said he was not aware of the suspension status. Thompson was returning from a hunting trip when police pulled him over for speeding and arrested for driving on the suspended license.
“My friends had gone to the Dollar General store and got Wyatt Earp mustaches and took a picture of me like I was in a wanted poster,” Thompson said, according to The Eagle.
“James posted bond and was released,” stated Greenwood County Sheriff’s Department press release, obtained by the The Daily Caller News Foundation through Sheriff Heath Samuels.
Samuels told TheDCNF the bond was $2,500 cash and was “bonded out shortly after being booked in.”
