The criminal charges of eluding police and the subsequent disorderly persons charges were dropped Tuesday in Hudson County Court.
Lauletta will have all charges dropped if he avoids further trouble over the next 12 months as part of the conditional dismissal program in New Jersey.
Lauletta was arrested in October for various motor vehicle and related disorderly persons offenses pertaining to a traffic violation in Weehawken, New Jersey.
The police alleged he tried to make a right turn from the wrong lane in his Jaguar to get to Route 495 West for the second straight day. He was told to keep going straight, but Lauletta almost struck an officer while making the illegal turn and then “refused various instructions” after he was stopped by another officer at the end of the on-ramp, the police said.
