However, when the detective stopped the truck, Rivera allegedly pretended to be asleep.

According to police, Rivera provided a false name and was wanted for aggravated assault by Wilmington. He was also arrested and charged with obstructing his own arrest and being a fugitive from justice.
Both men were being held at the Cape May County Correctional Center pending extradition to the first state.
The public is reminded that charges are charges and everyone is considered innocent until proven guilty in court.
