Arrest made in hit-and-run death of Robert Maraj, father of Nicki Minaj
Police in New York say they arrested the driver who allegedly struck and killed Robert Maraj, the father of rapper Nicki Minaj, last week on Long Island.
Nassau County Police Det. Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick said on Wednesday that Charles Polevich, 70, was arrested after turning himself in.
Polevich faces charges for leaving the scene of a deadly automobile accident and for taking measures to hide or disguise his distinctive 1992 white Volvo station wagon from authorities, Fitzpatrick said, adding that police tracked it before and after the accident using security footage.
“We kind of tracked it right to his house,” Fitzpatrick said.
Polevich owns a home in Mineola, New York, on Long Island, but resides in Guam, the U.S. territory in the western Pacific, Fitzpatrick said.
