On September 7 , 2019, State Police arrested 25-year-old Steven J. Diaz of Colonie, for Aggravated Unlicensed Operation 2nd degree, Obstruction of Governmental Administration 2nd degree, and Resisting Arrest.
Shortly after 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, State Police stopped a vehicle on Interstate 90 in Albany, after the operator was observed committing multiple traffic infractions. When the Trooper interviewed the operator Steven Diaz, he found that Diaz was operating on a suspended license and the vehicle that he was driving was unregistered and uninsured.
The Trooper instructed Diaz to exit the vehicle and he refused to comply. When the Trooper attempted to place handcuffs on Diaz, he pulled his arms away and grabbed the steering wheel, preventing the Trooper from being able to place him in custody. After being instructed to comply multiple times, Diaz submitted to arrest. He was transported to SP Latham for processing and issued an appearance ticket for Albany City Court on September 19, 2019, at 8:30 a.m.
