Hussain was involved in the day-to-day operations of the business. He is the son of the limo company owner.
Hussain was issued written violations by New York State Police and the New York State Department of Transportation saying that the driver hired shouldn't have been behind the vehicle.
The vehicle was also placed out of service last month and shouldn't have been on the road.
