FOX 2 Now reported:
A spokesman at the Missouri Highway Patrol said troopers did book a man by the name Safullo Saipov into the St. Charles County Jail. According to authorities, he broke the law back on December 16, 2015 in Platte County, Missouri. The 29-year-old truck driver was ticketed at scale by highway patrol troopers for failing to maintain the brake system.
They released a mug shot of Sayfullo Saipov.
In April 2016, Saipov failed to show up in court for that ticket and a warrant was issued. Bond was set at $200 cash. According to unofficial court records, Saipov was stopped October 21, 2016 in St. Charles County on that warrant. A new court date was scheduled for November.
Saipov failed to appear and finally, on November 29, a guilty plea was entered. The court decided Saipov would pay $129.50 for the ticket for bad brakes and $70.50 for court cost. In affect he lost all the $200 bond.
On October 31, Saipov drove down a busy bicycle path in New York near the World Trade Center, killing eight people and injuring about a dozen others in what officials said was an “act of terror.”
