A man driving with "private" license plates was arrested on Highway 26, according to Washington County deputies, causing traffic delays Wednesday afternoon.

A deputy stopped a pickup near Northwest 185th Avenue. The truck had fake license plates that said, "No driver license or insurance required."

Deputies said the driver refused to provide his name or a form of identification.

All eastbound lanes were blocked while the incident unfolded.

The man was taken into custody and eventually identified as 63-year-old Richard Leroy Garrison. He was arrested on charges of failure to carry and present a valid license and interfering with a peace officer.

The eastbound lanes of Highway 26 reopened in the area by 2 p.m.
