Somers, New York – On November 10, 2020, the New York State Police from the Somers barracks arrested Aaron Hudson, age 52, of Cortlandt, NY, for Attempted Robbery in the 2nd degree, two counts of Assault in the 2nd degree, Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 5th degree, all class D felonies, Resisting Arrest, Obstruction of Governmental Administration, both class A misdemeanors, and Driving While Intoxicated, an unclassified misdemeanor.

At approximately 10:00 p.m. Troopers conducted a traffic stop of a black Volvo XC-90 on Warren Street in the town of Somers for a violation of the vehicle and traffic law.  Subsequent to a probable cause search for illicit substances an amount of crack-cocaine was found in the vehicle.  The operator, identified as Aaron Hudson, when placed under arrest violently resisted.  Both Hudson and the Trooper fell over the guiderail into a stream bed approximately five feet below the road grade.

Hudson repeatedly assaulted the Trooper and attempted to steal his service weapon.  An additional Trooper responded to the scene and Hudson was taken into custody.  All three sustained non-life-threatening injuries as a result of Hudson’s actions.

Hudson was arraigned before the town of Somers Court and remanded to the Westchester County Jail without bail.  He is next scheduled to appear before the Court on November 16, 2020, at 5:30 p.m.
