An Alaska man was arrested on Monday for allegedly driving a car with a homemade sovereign citizen-style license plate in Delta Junction, according to The license plate on the 1985 Ford Pinto read, “Approved National Non-Commercial Private Property Without Prejudice UCC 1-308 1-303.6.”

[su_center_ad]Alaska State Troopers began following the vehicle on Monday at the Delta Junction IGA grocery store, according to a criminal complaint filed in court Tuesday.

The “UCC” item in 64-year-old Bernard Goodno’s homemade license plate refers to the Uniform Commercial Code, a series of standardized laws governing commercial contracts. Sovereign Citizens believe the government doesn’t have authority over them.

The movement argues the existence of the commercial code means that criminal or traffic laws do not apply to them.

After a brief pursuit that ended a few blocks away, Goodno was pulled over. Troopers said Goodno has not had a state of Alaska driver’s license since 2007.

When Goodno was finally pulled over, he rolled down a window and handed the troopers a card that read “Constitutional Rights Investigator Sovereign Civilian Without Prejudice UCC 1-308 / 1-303.6 Questions Answered — Payment Required $15,000 gold fee required for the service. No Contract = No Contract. This is a contract offer. Acceptance is subject to payment.”

Goodno’s history includes six convictions for misdemeanor offenses such as driving without a license and eluding that date back to 1997, troopers said.

The suspect was arrested on misdemeanor charges of driving without a valid driver’s license and second-degree failure to stop at the direction of a peace officer.

Newsminer reports, “Troopers originally forwarded a felony count of forging a license plate to the Fairbanks District Attorney’s office. The district attorney’s office filed a much less serious charge, a traffic citation for failing to properly display a license plate, according to online court records.”

Goodno’s Facebook page is littered with images of firearms, an image supporting the Tea Party and at least one reference to the Three Percenters.

    He’s already got the experience. Why not use him in the tag making department of the Alaska Correctional Institute?

      Alaska ships most of the prisoners to private prisons down South.

    “The district attorney’s office filed a much less serious charge, a traffic citation for failing to properly display a license plate”

        how the hell do you impress with an old buck knife? 🙂

    Tea party followers take much longer than everyone else to figure out they’ve been scammed! Including ‘6 convictions for misdemeanors such as driving without a license.’ Brainstorm: If I drive with a faux vehicle license plate, the PD won’t know I’m unlicensed!

    • fahvel September 11th, 2014 at 3:30 am

      hey Obe, he’s not hiding is he?

    Well, it goes to show the wingers can make up all sorts of self-made laws that only apply to them in the most convenient of circumstances. I say round’m up and give them their own plot of land, and let them fight amongst each other on who laws are laws.

    As an aside, the article (from the linked site) says he was driving a 1985 Ford Pinto; Pintos went out of production in 1980.

    • M D Reese September 10th, 2014 at 8:12 pm

      He lied about his car too?

    • neworleans878 September 10th, 2014 at 10:44 pm

      That was the most incredible part of the story for me..there are still Pintos riding around out there?

      • William September 10th, 2014 at 11:05 pm

        They made a movie about the Ford Pinto as I recall.

        • MarcoZandrini September 11th, 2014 at 2:44 am

          Definition of hell: tollbooth with a Pinto in front and an Audi 5000 behind!

        • fahvel September 11th, 2014 at 3:29 am

          no no non – chariots on fire.

    • fahvel September 11th, 2014 at 3:29 am

      is their demand for respect any different than obama wanting to blow the hell out of foreigners to gain respect for the usa’s demand for petroleum control?

        How many times do you get to flaunt the law without consequences?

  9. juicyfruityyy September 10th, 2014 at 9:15 pm

    So, he would be let go. Given a pat on the head. But next time don’t get caught.

  10. fahvel September 11th, 2014 at 3:27 am

    is the image with gun who this guy is or is he someone who just believes in his own sovereignty? I like the concept as long as it’s not just bullshit to carry guns into mcdonalds.

    He’s not into taxes, you pay for property it’s yours, same with vehicles. Eventually we’ll get it and stop buying condo’s and homes… those that are for taxes should spend a little time talking with the elderly, in order to survive they need to have shack up with other retired to make ends meet, buy medicine and food.

    Statutory codes are not law, in fact some codes violate the constitutionally guaranteed rights of the citizens.
    Fact is that when you sign the license, you give up any rights protected by the constitution. You must sign it… UCC 1- 308 Without Prejudice …to retain your rights.
