A Long Island teenager who is awaiting sentencing in a drag-racing crash that killed five has been arrested after a traffic stop.
Nineteen-year-old Cory Gloe was a passenger in a car that was stopped for speeding in Farmingdale Tuesday night.
Nassau County police say they spotted marijuana and a "gravity knife" in the car. Gloe was arrested on a charge of third-degree criminal possession of a weapon.
Acting Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter said that Gloe has "a lot of soul searching to do."
Gloe pleaded not guilty to the crime and is being held on $50,000 bail. His attorney, Stephen LaMagna, maintains that the knife belonged to a driver.
"We have full faith with the district attorney's office that they are going to do the proper investigation," said LaMagna.
Prosecutors said Gloe challenged another driver to a race in May 2014. That driver and his passengers were killed when they crossed into oncoming traffic and hit an SUV.
