A Long Island man received an 85/55 speeding ticket while traveling on the Northern State Parkway. The ticket was returnable at the North Hills Village Traffic Court. The driver wanted to get even with the cop so he allegedly made an ill-advised prank call. About a month after the speeding ticket was issued, the motorist called the police officer‘s mother and said that her son was seriously injured in a car accident.
Using phone records to trace the call, the police arrested the 54-year old motorist. He is now in much more trouble than a simple moving violation being charged with second-degree aggravated harassment, a misdemeanor in New York.
