A clean driving record is a badge of honor for most of us; for Rolling Stone Keith Richards, it’s probably right up there with waking up in the morning with a pulse. And now “Keef” will be able to drive clean and clear in the state of Arkansas after having a 31-year-old citation expunged from his record. Back in 1975, the AP reports, Richards (shown here in about the most flattering picture we could find) was ticketed for swerving on the road after a lunch stop in Fordyce, where the constabulary wrote him up for reckless driving. Current Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee recently submitted an application for clemency for Richards, 62, to the state’s parole board—and once Huckabee gets their approved order to sign, Richards will be free of the man once again.
