Driver Who Killed Nicki Minaj's Father Asked if He Was Ok, But Didn’t Call for Help

A 70-year-old man was arrested yesterday in the hit-and-run death of rapper Nicki Minaj’s father.

According to a Nassau County, New York detective, ”He was absolutely aware of what happened. He got out of the car and he looked at the deceased, got into his car, and made the conscious decision to leave instead of dialing 911, instead of calling an ambulance for the man. He went home and secluded the vehicle. He’s well aware of what he did."

Charles Polevich faces charges of leaving the scene of an incident and tampering with physical evidence.

Polevich is free on bail, but his driver’s license has been suspended, he was ordered to surrender his passport, and a judge said he can't leave the state.
