Driving Without License: Maria Isabel Lopez Arrested for Repeatedly Honking in Front of Kindergarten School


Controversial former beauty queen and actress Maria Isabel Lopez once again is getting a media spotlight after she was stopped and arrested along Tordesillas St., in Salcedo Village, Makati.

According to the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA), traffic constable Arturo Suico who first flagged her down, the actress attempted to run away but a nearby police car blocked her Toyota Vios after he called the attention of two police officers on patrol.

Suico said Lopez slowed down in front of Cambridge Child Development Center and started honking to the vehicles in front of her.

The security guard on duty at the gate of the pre-school center asked Suico to call the attention of the driver (Lopez), and to stop her from blowing her car’s horn because the flag ceremony was ongoing.

“Sabi ko mam baka pwede wag muna tayong bumusina at flag ceremony lang. Hindi ko naman siya kilala”, Suico said.

Instead of responding, Lopez tried to speed away by hitting the gas pedal. Suico then shouted for help on the police car which was slowing down two cars ahead of Lopez.

Police immediately identified Lopez and she was escorted to the nearest police station. Her car was driven by another police officer as she was not allowed to drive from the spot.

Lopez gained notoriety last year during the ASEAN Summit when she used the ASEAN lane in EDSA, and even taking a video of her violations.

The Land Transportation Office has revoked her driver’s license since then, but the unlicensed Lopez still drives her car.

The LTO has yet to name the cases they will file against the rebellious Lopez.
