Driver Jailed Following I-88 Traffic Stop in Fenton
A Westchester County man has been charged with resisting arrest after a vehicle stop in the town of Fenton.
Authorities said 20-year-old Brian James Ho of Cortlandt Manor was pulled over by a Broome County sheriff's deputy on Interstate 88 Saturday morning.
The deputy had been monitoring traffic on Interstate 81 in the town of Dickinson when a vehicle passed him at a high rate of speed.
According to the sheriff's office, the vehicle changed over three lanes and cut off several cars after the driver spotted the patrol vehicle.
Ho allegedly tried to elude the pursuing deputy by heading east on I-88.
After the vehicle was stopped, a search turned up cocaine, LSD and other drugs, along with brass knuckles.
Investigators said there was a brief struggle when the deputy tried to take Ho into custody.
In addition to the resisting charge, Ho faces drug and weapon possession counts. He also was cited for reckless driving and speeding. He was arraigned in Fenton town court and sent to Broome County Jail on $2,000 bail.
