Hastings Cops Say Man Caused Scene When Questioned About His Car

HASTINGS-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. – A Brooklyn man became “uncooperative” when questioned by officers who discovered that the car he was driving did not have proper registration and license plates, according to police.

Dajohn Sanchez, 20, was arrested and charged with multiple vehicle and traffic violations, disorderly conduct, obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest on Dec. 27.

Police said Sanchez’s vehicle was stopped just after 4 p.m. after a plate hunter identified a suspended registration, but upon further review the plates did not match the vehicle they were registered to.  Officers went to speak with Sanchez, who refused to cooperate and “created a scene” on Warburton Ave., police reports said.

Dobbs Ferry, Yonkers and Westchester County police were called in for assistance as a crowd formed.  The vehicle had improper plates, a suspended registration and no insurance along with other violations, police said.  Sanchez was difficult to deal with, uncooperative and resisted arrest, according to police.  He was arraigned by a judge that day and released on $250 bail.

The following items were also reported in the police blotter:

- Valentino Nunez, a 27-year-old Hastings resident, was arrested and charged with harassment, trespassing and resisting arrest on Dec. 24.  Police said Nunez was outside a home on Broadway around 4:30 a.m. repeatedly ringing the buzzer, but every time the owner asked who it was, there was no response.  Police said the homeowner looked outside and Nunez appeared to be hiding.  When patrol officers arrived, police said Nunez refused to explain why he was on the property and what he was doing.  Police reports said he was extremely difficult and “very uncooperative” and was arrested, arraigned and released that day.

- A Hastings man got into an accident on the Hutchison Parkway on Dec. 26, but did not sustain any injuries and attempted to drive the damaged vehicle home.  Police said the vehicle had suffered heavy front-end damage and the man struggled to get home while driving with his hazards on.  Police stopped the man on Warburton Ave. and no hit-and-runs had been reported that day. Officers said he was not intoxicated so they made sure he got home safely.
