A Frederick County, Maryland, sheriff's deputy had an unusual reason for stopping a car driven by Mauricio Arellano. The car, say officials, had too many air fresheners hanging from the mirror. Arellano says he believes he was stopped because he and the other occupants of the car are Hispanic. The deputy asked each for ID. The passengers produced Marylan driver's licenses. Arellano, who is in the United States on a temporary visa, showed the deputy a Mexican driver's license and an international drivers license, which, according to The Frederick News-Post, allows him legally to operate a vehicle in the state. But the deputy still arrested Arellano for not having proper ID.
