NEW JERSEY – A New Jersey man is being hailed a hero after he used his state’s driver license to pull over a police car to ask a driver to drop off a girl.
On Saturday, officers spotted the man on a nearby street in Hoboken and pulled him over, the New Jersey Turnpike Authority said.
He then called the police department to tell them that he was carrying a child.
“He was clearly nervous and was acting like a nervous person,” said Hoboken Police Chief Peter DiRienzo.
“I was able to get a statement that said he had a license and he had permission to drive,” said Lt.
“If the license holder is acting in a way that is dangerous, then it is a crime,” said Kelly.
A photo taken of the license shows the license number and is not a photo ID.
The photo ID must be presented for any police officer who asks the license to be dropped off.
It was not immediately clear if the man would be prosecuted.
