State Police End Probe Of Lawmaker’s Traffic Stop

New Jersey state police say an internal investigation has concluded that a state lawmaker’s claim that he was improperly issued a speeding ticket earlier this year was unfounded.

The Star-Ledger reported the finding Sunday.

Shortly after being ticketed on Feb. 21, Assemblyman Nelson Albano claimed he may have been targeted as payback for health benefit and pension reforms approved by the Legislature, though he admitted he had no proof to back up that assertion.

Meanwhile, the trooper who issued the citation claimed police union leaders pressured him to make the ticket “disappear,” allegations they denied.

Albano had withdrawn his complaint in late April. He did not respond to the newspaper’s requests for comment.

The Vineland resident has represented the state’s 1st Legislative District since 2006.
