When you’re driving down the road and you see those flashing lights in your rear view mirror, you know that you need to pull over.


That usually comes with several feelings of being nervous or maybe a little sad, or possibly angry. If you are feeling angry, when the officer comes over to your vehicle, it’s probably not a good idea to start screaming and swearing at the officer. You’ll probably end up with a little more than a traffic ticket, which is what a man from Catskill found out.

Erving Caraballo was pulled over in Catskill by a New York State Police around 10:30 a.m. on Saturday morning, for an issue regarding the tinted windows on his car. When the trooper went to talk to Caraballo, he was given a ticket for tinted windows. He then allegedly became uncooperative and started to scream and swear at the trooper. Caraballo’s barrage of obscenities allegedly happened as several children were walking nearby. Needless to say that this didn’t help his case.

Caraballo’s legal problems didn’t end there. When the trooper told Caraballo to get out of his vehicle, he allegedly refused. He was then arrested and taken into custody.

In addition to the traffic ticket, Caraballo is facing several charges including Disorderly Conduct, Resisting Arrest, and others. According to the story from News 10 ABC, He has a future date to return to Catskill Town Court.
