San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi’s driver’s license has been suspended since February for his failure to fulfill a legal obligation to tell the state Department of Motor Vehicles about a car accident in which he was involved, The Chronicle has learned.

A spokeswoman for Mirkarimi said Monday that the sheriff was unaware his license had been suspended until The Chronicle asked him about it.

Mirkarimi was in an accident in San Francisco on Oct. 2 in which one or both cars involved were damaged, according to DMV records. The records don’t specify who was at fault, but under state law it doesn’t matter — both drivers were obliged to file damage reports with the DMV if someone was hurt or if the damage amounted to at least $750.

  1. Laws are for Little People, and Sheriff Scofflaw is not one of Them.
    Note to The City: Time for a recall, or is it permissible to have a Sheriff conduct his duties from a jail-cell…..for that is certainly where he seems to be headed.
