Car involved in Washington Square crash had multiple speeding tickets

The guy accused of slamming his ride into two cops and the Washington Square Park arch was driving a car with 11 speeding tickets in the last two years, including a half-dozen unpaid citations for zooming through school zones, The Post has found.

Jeremy Molina, 25, also had a baggie of weed on him when cops cuffed him for plowing his 2017 Nissan Maxima into the arch and a NYPD car with two officers inside around 2 a.m. Sunday, police sources said.

New York City traffic records show that Molina’s Nissan has been issued 11 tickets since 2018 — six of them for speeding in school zones in Queens.

Molina was barreling down Fifth Avenue and failed to turn onto Washington Square North, according to law enforcement sources and witnesses who said he was moving at “highway speed.”

Instead, he plowed straight through a row of metal barricades and into the parked car of the officer tasked with guarding the iconic arch, the sources said.

A police source said Molina was drunk at the time.

Molina’s Nissan was totaled following the crash, but he was intact enough to stumble from his wreck, blood dripping from his nose, and shout “Suck my d—” at a New York Post photographer.

The officer is being treated for back and neck injuries at NY Presbyterian Cornell Hospital. That officer also suffered non-life-threatening head injuries in the dramatic crash. A second officer on the scene refused medical treatment at the hospital, according to sources.

The suspect was taken to Bellevue Hospital with a head injury, where police are waiting to take him into custody and file charges.
