YORKTOWN, N.Y. - A 19-year-old Mohegan Lake man was charged with felony criminal possession of a forged instrument after police said he was found with a fake driver's license.

Robert Bronstein was a passenger Saturday when his friend's car was stopped after police said the driver passed through a stop sign at the intersection of Clover and West roads. During the stop around 8 p.m., police said that Bronstein was in possession of a forged Pennsylvania driver's license, according to the report.

Bronstein was processed and arraigned on the felony charge and released on $200 bail. He is due back in court Feb. 5.

The 19-year-old driver was also charged with unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation. He was released without bail.

The reason we have police is so they can see what we don't and they do not need any special order to stop a person if they feel it is in the interest of safety.

Teenager have no conscience as to what they do. Often I hear that you do not have that part of the brain in full usage, but it is very hurtful for those of us who fall victim to them. I know first hand because I was set up by a group of kids and lost a job I loved. Until they are older and hopefully have the "brain power" needed to think through these incidents, they will not understand how stupid they are acting or how they might have really hurt someone. For now we all have to put up with their antics.

What type of criminal activity was Robert Bronstein suspected of, that caused him to have to show ID to the police? Unless you are suspected of committing, or about to commit a crime, you do not have to show ID to the police. New York is not yet a police state. If you are a passenger in a car, and have not done anything illegal, the police can ask for ID, but it is your right to refuse.
