The passenger, later identified as 34-year-old Anthony J. Neil, attempted to flee on foot. Officers chased the man along Route 51 where he was apprehended near Red Lobster.

Cunningham said there was an active arrest warrant for Neil, and he will be charged with resisting arrest, possession of a controlled substance and disorderly conduct in connection with the traffic stop.

Neil was arraigned by Magisterial District Judge Pat Capolupo.
