An East Patchogue man who was speeding in a school zone in Bellport Thursday had his license suspended or revoked 30 times, Suffolk County police said.

Police arrested Eric Mann, 41, on a felony charge of aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and also issued him a speeding ticket.

He is scheduled to be arraigned Friday at First District Court in Central Islip.
