Man Got Arrested For The Death of Nicki Minaj’s Father In Hit-And-Run Case

According to a statement, a 70-year-old Long Island man arrested on Wednesday for the hit-and-run crash that killed Nicki Minaj’s dad and he hid his car under a tarp after asking the dying victim if he was OK. He surrendered to police early Wednesday and was charged with leaving the scene of an accident and tampering with evidence.

Nassau County police said that Robert Maraj who is 64-year-old was walking in the street on Roslyn Road near his Mineola home when Polevich allegedly struck him near Raff Ave. about 6:15 p.m. Feb. 12.

According to the report, the driver got out of his white 1992 Volvo station wagon, stood over Maraj, and asked him if “he was OK” then jumped back into his vehicle and drove off, leaving Nicki Minaj’s father dying in the street. Then the officials said, when he reached his home, not far from the crash scene, the driver hid his car in his garage and covered the vehicle with a tarp.

Robert Maraj was hospitalized and died later that day. Nassau County Detective Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick said, “He was absolutely aware of what happened”. He then added, “He got out of the car and looked at the deceased. He made the conscious decision to leave”.

The driver was ordered held on a $250,000 bond during a brief arraignment in Nassau County Criminal Court on Wednesday. He is due back in court Friday. Up until now, Nicki Minaj has not publicly commented on her father’s death.
