PORTLAND — Former Portland City Councilor Dan Skolnik faces a criminal charge of driving with a suspended license after he was pulled over Wednesday afternoon on Chestnut Street.

An officer responding to an unrelated call saw Skolnik driving past his cruiser in a silver VW Beetle and recalled that his license had earlier been suspended. He confirmed Skolnik’s license was still suspended and issued him a summons to appear in court June 13, police said.

The summons alleges a misdemeanor crime rather than just a civil infraction because of a previous charge of operating after suspension. Skolnik also was issued tickets for driving an unregistered, uninspected and uninsured car, police said.

Skolnik’s council term ended this week with the swearing in of the newly elected council. He is the former chairman of the council’s Public Safety Committee and a former member of the Police Citizen Review Subcommittee.
