GREENBURGH — Throwing marijuana out the car window. Fleeing from police, on foot and by car. Smashing into a cement barrier.

This Greenburgh traffic stop was a rough one, according to police.

State police said Derrick Sutton, 30, and William Allen, 34, both of New York City, face multiple charges after being arrested on Wednesday night following a traffic stop on the Sprain Brook Parkway.

The incident started at 9:48 p.m., when a trooper saw a black Mercedes failing to stay in its lane on the northbound parkway, police said. As the trooper stopped the Mercedes, he saw Allen, the passenger, pass several bags of marijuana to Sutton, who was driving and impaired by drugs, police said.

The trooper had Allen step outside, at which point Sutton allegedly threw the marijuana out the window and drove away, almost hitting the trooper. Allen then allegedly ran away.

Sutton drove north onto the exit for Dobbs Ferry Road where he crashed into a cement barrier, police said. With the help of Greenburgh police, Sutton was taken into custody on the southbound ramp of the parkway and Allen was arrested on Secor Road.

Sutton’s driver’s license had been revoked because he had 31 suspensions, police said. He was charged with first-degree reckless endangerment, first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, and tampering with physical evidence, all felonies, as well as misdemeanor counts of resisting arrest, third-degree unlawfully fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle, and operating a motor vehicle while impaired by drugs. He also faces a violation for unlawful possession of marijuana.

Allen was charged with a felony count of violating probation, a misdemeanor count of resisting arrest, and a violation for unlawful possession of marijuana.

Both men are scheduled to appear in Greenburgh Town Court on Tuesday. Sutton is being held without bail at the Westchester County jail, and Allen was released on $1,500 bail.
