      Latta recreation director asked to resign after driver's license is suspended again

      Vontray Sellers

      Latta Recreation Director Vontray Sellers has been asked by Latta Town Council to resign after members learned his driver's license had been suspended again.

      Sellers said his last day on the job will be Friday.

      He pled guilty in May to Driving Under Suspension (DUS).

      Officials with the SC Department of Motor Vehicles said Seller's license was suspended July 3 and will be until October because he pled guilty to the DUS charge.

      Latta police arrested Sellers on February 20 for Driving Under Suspension First Offense, according to an incident report.

      That arrest happened after Latta Police Chief Crystal Moore got an inquiry from a resident saying Sellers license was suspended, the report said.

      An investigation found that his license was suspended following a Reckless Driving charge in Dillon on June 30, 2013, according to the report.

      The report said the suspension began November 25, 2013, three months before Sellers was hired as the Latta Recreation Director.

      He had been driving the town's van while his license was suspended, according to the arrest report.

      The advertisement the town posted for the position stated that applicants must have a valid driver's license and a good driving record.

      Sellers said he made a mistake and didn't realize his license had been suspended.

      He said he loves working with kids and wants to move on from this situation.
