(Newser) – It wasn't a ruse: The man sought in last weekend's hit and run in Brooklyn that killed a young couple and their infant son surrendered as promised today. Police took Julio Acevedo into custody without incident at a supermarket parking lot in northeastern Pennsylvania after a friend arranged it, reports the AP. The 44-year-old is expected to be extradited to New York shortly to face charges. “He walked up to the car and got in,” a witness tells the Daily News. “No words or nothing.”

News Update: Julio Acevedo was Arrested and Charged only with leaving the scene of an accident and being held without Bond. Right now, Acevedo is not being charged with 3 Counts of Murder or 3 Counts of Vehicular Homicide, as demanded by the Orthodox Jewish Community. It seems that since Acevedo left the scene of an accident and could not be immediately Tested by the cops for drugs or alcohol, after 4 days there is no evidence that Acevedo was drunk driving or driving under the influence. Now, I know! Should I ever drive drunk in NYC, do a hit & run. By leaving the scene of the accident for 4 days, NYC cops can only arrest and charge me with leaving the scene of an accident only. smdh.
