Cops: Street racers arrested on Long Island Expressway

BY SOPHIA CHANG and JOHN VALENTI | sophia.chang@newsday.com john.valenti@newsday.com
7:42 PM EDT, October 1, 2008

Newsday Photo / Julia Gaines

This license plate is on a 2004 BMW that was one of four cars confiscated by police and taken to Bill's Towing in Hicksville. (October 1, 2008)

HEYOFFCR.

If the vanity license plate on the 2001 BMW sedan speeding along the Long Island Expressway was meant to attract the attention of police, then the Queens man who was racing against several others early yesterday got what he asked for, police said.

Around 1:20 a.m., Nassau County Highway Patrol Officer Joseph Fernandez was pulling onto the westbound expressway near exit 48 when he saw eight to 10 high-end performance cars zip by faster than 100 mph, weaving across several lanes of traffic, said Det. Sgt. Anthony Repalone.

Fernandez flipped on his emergency lights and tried to make a traffic stop, but the cars kept going, Repalone said.

So the officer called other highway patrol units for assistance.

"He sees them in and out of traffic, headed toward the city, and he radios ahead to other patrol units to set up a stop," Repalone said.

The cars zipped to an area police call "the valley," the two-and-a-half-mile stretch between exits 40 and 39, but two patrol officers were waiting. When slower traffic forced the cars to slow down, the officers chased down four of them, Repalone said. The rest sped off.

Police arrested Anil Isaac, 22, of 124-08 107th Ave., Richmond Hill, who was driving the "HEYOFFCR" car. They also arrested brothers Ziad, 21, and Riad Mohamed, 19, both of 14926 122nd Pl., and Rajesh Prashaud, 21, of 135-26 Lefferts Blvd., all South Ozone Park. Riad Mohamed was in a 2006 Mazda RX8, Ziad in a 2004 Nissan, and Prashaud in a 2004 Infiniti. All the cars were impounded. All four are being held pending their arraignments.

The drivers told police they were returning from a night of drag racing on Route 231, Deer Park Avenue, police said. Suffolk police did not return a call regarding the drag racing yesterday.

The four are scheduled to be arraigned today in First District Court in Hempstead on charges of second-degree reckless endangerment, reckless driving, unlawful fleeing a police officer and illegal speed contest, as well as more than 40 traffic violations.

Three of the cars had windshield stickers that read "Place Ticket Here," with an arrow pointing to a spot under the windshield wipers, police said.

A woman who identified herself as Isaac's mother declined to comment, as did a man who answered the phone at the Mohamed residence. A message left at the Prashaud residence was not returned.

Isaac was issued 12 summonses for violations including an obstructed driver's view, failure to stay in a lane and having an illegally tinted windshield. Ziad Mohamed received 11 violations, Riad Mohamed seven violations and Prashaud eight violations, police said.

"We had the last laugh," Repalone said.

I grew up on LI, and they have really started cracking down hard on street racing over the past few years. Growing up 15 feet off of deer park ave made me realize really quickly that street racing is a really bad idea after seeing people pulled over at every other stoplight getting ticketed on top of the few fatal accidents that ocurred there. Its just not worth it.

With that said, he did have a nice E46.

Hah, yeah they get off on writing out BS tickets like that to raise money. I forgot to mention in my previous post that I was one of those idiots at one time who was pulled over at every other traffic light. Window tints, exhaust, no front plate, the list goes on and on. By far the worst of all was when I was pulled over one night on DPA when I was driving home late at night, and I was pulled over by an officer who told me "you were driving a little slow back there." Yes, I was pulled over for driving too slow. Unreal.

ROFL

they are asking for it with that vanity plate, super dark tints, etc. with a car that stands out that much i would not go racing down a highway going 100s of mph with another 3+ car cutting through traffic. just asking to get pulled over.

they deserve it.
