Richter on phone with expired license when pulled over in 2018

By Nikita Biryukov, February 18 2020 6:15 pm

David Richter was allegedly texting and driving when he was pulled over and charged with using an out-of-state driver’s license while living in New Jersey last April, according to a police report obtained by the New Jersey Globe through an Open Public Records Act request.

The officer who conducted the traffic stop wrote that he observed Richter holding his phone with both hands and texting.

He said Richter dropped the phone and looked straight ahead after the officer put his sirens on.

Richter said he was not texting but simply holding the phone in his right hand.

The third-district House candidate was charged with careless driving, using an out-of-state driver’s license after becoming a resident and use of a handheld wireless telephone while driving. He was driving using a Florida license.

The license and careless driving charges were dropped. Richter’s New Jersey license appears to have expired on July 31, 2018.

He pleaded guilty to the cell phone charge.
