Police: Limo company operator has been in trouble before

Flags are flying at half-staff in New York starting Thursday, in honor of the 20 lives lost in the Schoharie limo crash.
NewsChannel 13 is learning even more about the operator of the limo company who was charged with criminally negligent homicide on Wednesday.
Nauman Hussain is out on bond. Authorities say his limo driver, who died in the crash, didn't have the proper license to drive the limo.
NewsChannel 13 has now learned Hussain has been in similar situations before.
In 2014, Hussain and his brother, Shahyer, were pulled over on 787 in Cohoes. The Albany County District Attorney's Office confirms Shahyer was driving with a revoked license. So Nauman, the passenger, pretended he was his brother. Police found out Nauman was convicted of obstruction of governmental administration. His brother was convicted of aggravated unlicensed operation.
The family's lawyer said Wednesday night Nauman didn't feel safe staying at home because he got threats after Saturday's crash in Schoharie. That's why he was pulled over on 787 this time.
