An accusation filed by Assistant District Attorney Andre Pretorius, chief State Court prosecutor, on Oct. 14 charges Shabazz with three counts, including:

• Reckless driving on June 5 in a Ford Econoline van “refusing to stop his vehicle after being given verbal and visual commands to do so by Beverly Ferguson, who was directing traffic at the time of the incident.”
