The deputy initially pulled over the vehicle when he observed the car had a Texas paper tag showing an expiration date of Nov. 2016. Deputy McCarthey reported that the driver, Pena, seemed nervous.
Pena allegedly said he bought the car a few months ago but did not have paper or electronic insurance verification, the report said.
