New York State Woman Gets Hit With 31 Tickets During One Traffic Stop
I'm not sure what the record is for the most tickets issued during a traffic stop, but this has to be up there at the top. A New York woman was issued 31 citations during a single traffic stop. On Sunday, July 31, 2022, just before midnight, Troopers with the New York State Police observed a 2020 Ford Mustang violating several traffic and vehicle laws. The car was traveling on Peenpack Trail in Huguenot, a hamlet of Deerpark.
NYSP Troopers tried to pull the vehicle over, but the driver did not comply. The driver, 29-year-old Brittaney Brush from Huguenot, didn't stop, but instead continued to drive to a residence on Somarelli Drive. She got out of the vehicle and Troopers tried to take her into custody, but she fled on foot. Troopers caught Brush after a short foot chase and she was taken into custody. Police searched her vehicle and found a small number of drugs.
Brush was charged with the misdemeanors; Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 7th degree, Criminal Use of Drug Paraphernalia 2nd degree, Fleeing an Officer in a Motor Vehicle, Resisting Arrest, Obstruction of Governmental Administration and Driving While Ability Impaired by Drugs (DWAI).
Brush was given 31 tickets.
She was released and will return to the Town of Deerpark for a court appearance at a later date.
NYSP did not go into detail about each of the 31 tickets, but it doesn't take many points to have your license suspended in New York State. If all the tickets stick, I can't imagine that she will still have her license when it's all said and done.
