Cops Charged for "Death Race" Caper

Providing a high-speed escort for a caravan of luxury cars lands two New Jersey State Police officers in hot water


Two New Jersey State Police officers who escorted a high-speed caravan of luxury cars, including one driven by former New York Giants star Brandon Jacobs, to Atlantic City will likely be charged criminally Friday, the attorney for one of the officers said.

Sgt. 1st Class Nassir Nassry, a 25-year-veteran of the State Police, and Trooper Joseph Ventrella, 28, were suspended in April without pay after the March incident. Nassry allegedly ordered Ventrella to help with the caravan.
