ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — An Albany man was tracked down and arrested on Tuesday, nearly a month after he allegedly backed into a Sheriff’s Office patrol car and tried to run over a deputy. On Wednesday, October 5, Albany County Sheriff’s Deputies stopped El-Hajj M. Moses, 30, in the area of Robin Street and Sheridan Avenue.
