A Rockland County man was allegedly busted with metal knuckles during a routine traffic stop by state police.

Romario Gentiles, age 22, of Stony Point, was arrested on Saturday, Feb. 6, following a stop on I-87 in Clarkstown, said New York State Police Trooper Tara McCormick.

According to McCormick, state police stopped Gentiles for a traffic violation. While interviewing Gentiles, troopers noticed a pair of metal knuckles fall out of a bag while he was retrieving his identification.

Gentiles was taken into custody and charged with criminal possession of a weapon and released on an appearance ticket.

He is scheduled to appear in court on Monday, March 1.
