Stop for cell phone violation yields so much more

The urge to use a cell phone while driving can overcome even the most law-abiding folks — but this guy wasn’t one of those folks, police said.

A driver stopped for a cell phone violation at Mission and Randall streets around 2 a.m. Monday admitted to cops he didn’t have a license — and he even gave them a passport that appeared to be counterfeit, police said.

So that prompted cops to search the vehicle. They said they found a social security card and a driver’s license with the suspect’s photo on it.

“Both documents appeared to be counterfeit,” cops said.
 
The suspect was booked at Ingleside Station, police said.
