NJ Assemblyman Apologizes For Traffic Ticket Flap

A New Jersey lawmaker has apologized for asking a state police trooper to not issue him a speeding ticket.

Assemblyman Nelson Albano (New Jersey Legislature)

But Democratic Assemblyman Nelson Albano denied Monday that he was seeking any special treatment when he made the unsuccessful request, which has spurred an internal state police investigation.

The Vineland resident was stopped Feb. 21 on Route 29 in Hamilton Township (Mercer County). At the time, he was driving to the Statehouse for Gov. Chris Christie’s budget address.

Albano filed a complaint several days later, claiming he may have been targeted as payback for health benefit and pension reforms recently approved by the Legislature. And the trooper who issued the citation claims police union leaders pressured him to make the ticket “disappear,” allegations they deny.
