STONE HARBOR – A Millville manned learned that it’s best to pay attention to a police officer’s order when he was arrested on outstanding warrants after Stone Harbor police told him to move his SUV out of a bike lane.

Abel Hernandez-Antolin, 33, allegedly ignored Police Sgt. Greg Jackson’s directive to move his Chevrolet SUV out of a marked bike lane on Second Avenue, at about 8 a.m., Tuesday, Aug. 26, according to a statement.

Police said Hernandez-Antolin was unloading lumber into a dumpster, and told Jackson that he’d move the vehicle when he was finished, even though bicycle traffic was veering into the road to avoid the SUV.

The sergeant responded by running a vehicle stop, and found that not only was Hernandez-Antolin allegedly unlicensed and suspended to drive in New Jersey, but  police said he also had three warrants out for his arrest: receiving stolen property, $350 bail; unlicensed driver, $550 bail; seatbelt usage and suspended driver, $750 bail.

In addition to his arrest, police said Hernandez-Antolin’s vehicle was impounded, and he was charged with unlicensed driving and driving while suspended in Stone Harbor.

Police say that once Hernandez-Antolin was processed in Stone Harbor, he was turned over to the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department.
