NOTE: This story has been corrected from an earlier version. Rushern L. Baker IV was charged, but was not arrested as was earlier reported.


The son of Prince George's County Executive Rushern L. Baker III was charged earlier this year for driving on a suspended license, News4 has confirmed.

Rushern L. Baker IV, 25, was stopped by Maryland State Police while driving on Route 4 in Prince George's County on May 28, the Washington Post first reported.

The younger Baker was pulled over for driving 69 mph in a 55 mph zone, according to court records. He was also ticketed for driving with a suspended license.

That citation description reads: "person driving motor vehicle on highway or public use property on suspended license and privilege."

Baker pleaded guilty to the speeding charge, according to court records.

He is taking a driver improvement course to handle the suspended license charge, John Erzen of the Maryland State Attorney's Office told News4.

Baker's license was suspended after he failed to pay an October 2011 speeding ticket in Carneys Point, N.J. He had been unaware of the suspension in Maryland, the Post reported.

"We all are going to make mistakes. The question is how do you learn from those mistakes? How do you take those teachable moments and use them to help others? And I think that's what he's going to do. But I'm very proud of him, very proud to have him as my son," the elder Baker said of his son.
