The driver of a BMW is facing charges after he allegedly gave a false name to officers during a stop on Route 59, police say.
Orangetown Police say they initiated a traffic stop in the Village of Nyack after observing the driver of a white 2013 BMW commit a traffic violation on Thursday, March 28 around 2:45 p.m.
During the stop, police say the driver allegedly provided a false name and identity.
Upon further investigation, the operator was identified as 38-year-old Jeffrey Jeune of the Town of Woodbury in Orange County. Police discovered official supporting documents in the vehicle that contradicted the false identity Jeune originally provided.
A check with the DMV also revealed that Jeune was driving with a suspended license, police say.
Jeune was arrested and transported to Orangetown Police Headquarters, where he was charged with:
- Second-degree criminal impersonation, a misdemeanor
- Third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, a misdemeanor
Jeune was released on bail and is scheduled to return to Nyack Justice Court on April 30.
