suffolk_police_car2-300x1323A Yaphank man driving with a suspended license and drugs in his car has been arrested after colliding with a cop car Saturday night, say Suffolk County police.

Mitchell Alexander, 44, of Michelle La., Yaphank, was driving his wife’s 2007 Ford SUV on Route 112 at about 9:01 p.m. Dec. 12, when, at the intersection of County Road 83 in Coram, he made an illegal U-turn and crashed into a police car driven by Police Officer Richard Caiado of the Sixth Precinct.

No one was injured, but the crash resulted in damage to both vehicles.


A computer check at the scene of the crash determined that Alexander’s license was suspended. He was also found to be in possession of marijuana at the time of his arrest.

Alexander was arrested for Driving with a Suspended License and Unlawful Possession of Marijuana. He was released on station house bail and will be arraigned at First District Court, Central Islip, on a later date.
