Cleveland County, NC (QUEEN CITY NEWS) – Madison Cawthorne, a Republican in Henderson County, representing the 11th county seat of the North Carolina Congress, was arrested and charged Monday.
According to the North Carolina State Road Patrol, Cawthorne faces criminal charges for driving a car with disqualifications. That would be one of the three charges related to driving that Kotorn now faces.
Cawthorn was stopped just before 1pm on Monday, October 18 on Interstate 40 in Bancombe County for the fact that he was driving at 89 mph in the 65 mph zone. He was stopped again on Saturday, January 8, 2022, just before 6:30 p.m. on U.S. 74 in Regiment County for moving at 87 miles per hour in the 70 mph zone.

On Thursday, March 3, Cowthorne was stopped again, this time around 10:30 pm on US 74B in Cleveland County for a 2019 Toyota release, which drove to the left of the center. It was during this incident that investigators learned that Coutorn’s license had been revoked.
This charge is a 3rd class offense. The maximum penalty is 20 days of arrest.
The Asheville Citizen-Times reports that Coutorna was charged with driving a disqualified car in 2017 in Bancombe County. The charge was later dropped.
Queen City News was able to get a statement from a Cawthorn spokesman who said Cawthorn expects that “road issues will be resolved quickly and we remain focused on servicing the NC-11 components”.
