RESPONSE TO TERROR | IN BRIEF / OKLAHOMA

Hijacker's Traffic Ticket May Be Evidence

January 22, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

One of the Sept. 11 hijackers got a speeding ticket in Oklahoma last spring, and it may be used as evidence against Zacarias Moussaoui, the former Oklahoma resident arrested shortly before the attacks.

Five months before the attacks, Highway Patrol Trooper C.L. Parkins stopped Nawaf Alhazmi, believed to be one of the hijackers of the airliner that hit the Pentagon. He was ticketed for speeding and not wearing a seat belt. He later paid a fine.

The tickets were issued during the time Moussaoui was living in Norman.
