YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: For the second time in less than two months, Bogota Councilman Evaristo Burdiez Jr. was jailed for failing to pay child support after police in town ran a check of his license plate for illegal parking this afternoon and found a warrant.

Bogota police called to Palisade Avenue and Third Place on a report of a car in a “No Parking” zone just after 12:30 p.m. saw Burdiez walking from a nearby store just as word came back of the warrant issued Tuesday, Detective Capt. James Sepp told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

He was held on police headquarters until Bergen Conty Sheriff’s officers picked up him and brought him to the county jail.

Jail records show a $1,824.03 debt.

Burdiez, 43, was arrested on Oct. 29 in Teaneck after a warrant issued six days earlier turned up during a trafic stop.

He paid $8,586.03 in owed child support and was released from the county jail.

Last year Burdiez was charged with DWI in Bergenfield after police stopped his black Land Rover at 1:25 a.m. Aug. 24 at Clinton Avenue and Henry Street, according to a police report. He was issued four summonses and his car was towed and impounded, the report says.

Burdiez also has a tentative Dec. 18 trial date in Hackensack involving cross-claims by outgoing Bogota Mayor Tito Jackson’s claim that Burdiez hit him during a closed Borough Council budget session in August and Burdiez’s allegation that the mayor harassed him.

Burdiez, who runs a freight shipping and trucking company out of Jersey City, was sworn to the council in 2011 to fill a vacant seat, then lost a primary this spring. His council term expires at the end of this month.
