Assemblyman busted for speeding, marijuana possession
COEYMANS – State Police have arrested Assemblyman Stephen Katz
(R-Yorktown) and charged with speeding an unlawful possession of
Troopers arrested Katz at 10 a.m. on Thursday, March 14 following a traffic stop on the Thruway in the Town of Coeymans.
Katz was pulled over while driving 80 mph in a posted 65 mph zone on the northbound Thruway.
After police noted a smell of marijuana, they found Katz in possession of a small bag of pot.
He was released on an appearance ticket to appear in Coeymans Town Court.
Katz issued a statement calling his arrest an “unfortunate
incident.” He said he would not let it “impede my public service
and my calls for real mandate relief, a better economic climate
and better services for those in need in New York.”
Katz said the incident “should not overshadow the work I have done over the years for the public and my constituency.”
