Attorney Charles Sciarra tells The Star-Ledger that Sgt. 1st Class Nadir Nassry met with authorities Monday morning and was released a short time later. Sciarra says no arraignment date has been set, and he says Nassry will fight the charges.
It was not known when the other trooper charged in the case, Joseph Ventrella, would surrender.
State prosecutors have said the two troopers sought to conceal their involvement in the escort, which reached speeds exceeding 100 mph, by using electrical tape to alter their license plates.
