Holbrook, NY - January 24, 2019 - The Second Squad reports the arrest of a Holbrook man at 12:10am on Tuesday, January 22, 2019.
According to Detectives, on Friday, January 4, 2019 defendant Daniel Heckman, 30, did violate a Suffolk County Stay Away Order in Hicksville. While the female victim, 25, was in Hicksville the defendant did take the victim’s phone without her permission and left the scene.  
On Monday, January 21, 2019 Nassau County Detectives responded to the defendant’s home to place him under arrest. Defendant Heckman refused the Detectives lawful orders to stop and entered a 2017 Nissan Maxima and then maneuvered the vehicle to lurch forward causing one Detective to jump out of the way from being struck and then erratically backed out of the driveway fleeing the scene.  
The Detectives located the defendant on the North Service Road; the defendant refused to pull over, entered the Long Island Expressway and began driving erratically. The Suffolk County Police Department was notified and assisted the Nassau Detectives in an attempt to stop the defendant’s vehicle as he continued to drive westbound committing many VTL violations. The defendant changed direction, continued to drive erratically and refused to stop until he drove back to his home. The defendant refused to exit his vehicle even though the driver’s door was open; he then reached toward the floor with his hand. At that time K-9 Champ assisted in affecting the arrest as the defendant struggled with Officers.
