TRENTON - New Jersey's attorney general announced criminal charges and disciplinary action today against troopers who led a high-speed caravan of luxury and sports cars down the Garden State Parkway.

Sgt. Nadir Nassry and another trooper were suspended without pay back in April.

This happened after video of the caravan speeding down the Garden State Parkway on March 30 escorted by state police was uploaded to YouTube and quickly went viral.

Attorney General Jeff Chiesa and State Police Superintendent Rick Fuentes also announced new guidelines for how to handle escorts so that future escorts are done in a way that promotes public safety.

They also announced disciplinary charges against four troopers in connection with a similar event in 2010, as well as disciplinary charges against a trooper who improperly handled a traffic ticket issued to a member of a driving club who was stopped for speeding on the Garden State Parkway in his Lamborghini that same year.

All five troopers are facing a period of unpaid suspension.

Because the matter is subject to a hearing process, specific penalties against the troopers are not yet available.
