RYE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Police say a man called authorities and told them that his wife was going into labor just to get faster road-side service.
Officials say on February 28 just after 1 a.m. police responded to a report of a disabled vehicle with a woman in labor on I-95. Troopers located the vehicle between Exits 19 and 20.
But police say there was only one person in the car: 30-year-old Daniel Traisman of Greenwich, Connecticut. He then told police he made up the pregnant wife story to get faster roadside service.
Additionally, police say Traisman was found to be in possession of cocaine, Clonazepam pills, and two glass pipes containing burnt cocaine residue. Police say he was arrested and charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 5th Degree, Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 7th Degree and Falsely Reporting an Incident in the 3rd Degree.
Traisman was arraigned before the City of Rye Court and remanded to the Westchester County Jail on no bail.
Clonazepam is used to treat anxiety, a Schedule IV Controlled Substance.
