Hempstead resident arrested for traffic violations in Roosevelt


A Hempstead man “popping wheelies” on a motorcycle and seen not stopping at a red traffic signal was arrested by Nassau police at 9:05 p.m. on Aug. 9, in Roosevelt.

Jahson Dindyal-Hamilton, 22, of Columbia Street, Hempstead, was driving a green and white Kawasaki KX250F traveling south in Uniondale Avenue, police said. At the intersection of Nassau Road and W. Greenwich Avenue the police stopped Dindyal-Hamilton, who then got off the motorcycle and ran west on W. Greenwich Avenue.

The police chased Dindyal-Hamilton and demanded that he stop as they warned him about using a taser.

After Dindyal-Hamilton ignored all the commands, according to police, the taser was deployed and he was arrested. Dindyal-Hamilton was taken to a local hospital for evaluation and released.

Police impounded the motorcycle as the vehicle’s identification number had been defaced.

Dindyal-Hamilton is charged with forgery of a vehicle identification number, reckless driving and six vehicle and traffic law violations. 

Issued an appearance ticket, his next court date is Aug. 28.
