At this point, most NYSF readers are aware of the accident last month on the Frites ‘N’ Meats truck that put Moody in the hospital  for a couple of weeks with serious burns.  In case you haven’t heard, he is expected to make a full recovery.

After hearing the news, many of you, and a bunch of the other food trucks, donated and raised money to help Frites ‘N’ Meats buy a new truck.

Just last week, Hiassam (Moody’s brother and a co-owner) told us they hope to be back on the street by August with a new truck that’s currently being built.

Today, Gothamist reported that Moody was arrested and charged with reckless endangerment because the truck was carrying twice the legal amount of propane (four cans instead of two) when the accident occurred.

We spoke with Hiassam for clarification, and he told us that that Moody wasn’t handcuffed and booked, but he was given a summons, and has to appear in court on June 6th.

Good to hear he wasn’t treated like a common criminal.

We will keep you apprised of the return of Frites ‘N’ Meats as it gets closer.


  1. so, reckless endangerment doesnt make him a common criminal? lets just be thankful that nobody, including the guys on the truck, were more seriously hurt. the law is in place for a reason.

  2. I’m just saying that a summons is the right way to go, as opposed to handcuffing and booking him. These days you hear about kids in elementary school getting handcuffed and taken out of classrooms. It was an accident, and a summons makes more sense for this type of charge.
