Breaking the law in New York City is illegal and could land you in jail.
The law, passed in 2017, states: “Any person who, without the express or implied consent of the owner, or of the person occupying such person’s vehicle, commits any violation of this chapter is guilty of a misdemeanor.”
The New Jersey Department of Transportation says a vehicle owner can file a lawsuit in state court if the vehicle owner is charged with a violation.
The law does not apply to motor vehicles owned by the state.

After she was released, she contacted her attorney and reported the incident.
