BALLSTON - It's not every day that local police pull over a king.

That's exactly what happened in Ballston.

The Saratoga County District Attorney’s Office confirms that Benjamin Ikenchuku was ticketed last month after a minor car accident.

Ikenchuku is a king from southern Nigeria.

NewsChannel 13 first introduced you to him last October when he was visiting Albany.

The district attorney’s office says King Ben was ticketed for improper passing.    

No one was hurt in the crash.

The king is due back in court in November.
