*Oh bruh. Seriously? Not that the thought never crossed our minds. Oh who am I kidding? The thought NEVER crossed my mind. But this guy actually did it. He was so desperate to get out of those expensive, pesty parking tickets, he posed as his fictitious, blind twin brother in a laughable attempt to delay court hearings on several motor vehicle summonses, according to authorities.
Olawale Agoro, of Hackensack, New Jersey, is now facing charges of hindering apprehension, false swearing and resisting arrest.
Agoro received five summons during a July 31 traffic stop, Rochelle Park police tells The Record. But Agoro pulled his ‘trump card’ out during a September court appearance, where authorities said the 58-year-old Agoro claimed to be his twin brother “Tony.”
Well, apparently he wasn’t fooling anybody. The officer who had actually given the man the tickets got suspicious of the claims, and saw Agoro driving later that day and issued him three more tickets.
Agoro then allegedly twice got adjournments after “Tony” sought them from court clerks, claiming that Agoro was in Nigeria mourning the death of their father. But a warrant was issued for his arrest this week after he failed to appear at a court hearing.
Agoro came to court the next day, and once again claimed he was “Tony.” The court clerks became suspicious and contacted authorities, who determined that “Tony” really was Agoro. “Tony” was unable to produce any identification, and police matched a birth mark under his lip to the photo on Agoro’s driver’s license, authorities said.
A telephone number for Agoro could not be located Saturday, and it wasn’t known if he has retained an attorney.
