ROSELLE PARK – Police charged a 21-year-old Elizabeth man with hindering apprehension on Friday morning after he allegedly gave a false name to police.
Kyle C. Gonzalez allegedly told police that his name was Richard Tiru when he was pulled over on Galloping Hill Road in Roselle Park and he claimed to have forgotten his license at home. Gonzalez signed his real name on a police document during the on-scene investigation and was speechless when asked why his signature didn’t match the name he gave police, authorities said.
Gonzalez was also charged with several traffic violations and was found to have a suspended driver’s license and two traffic warrants totaling $279 from East Hanover and Roseland. He was released after posting $2,500 bail.
The charges against Gonzalez are merely accusations; he is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
