(Newser) – Authorities say a New Jersey man was arrested after racking up over 300 toll violations and failing to pay more than $20,000 in tolls and fees. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said in a statement that James Clicerio, of Old Bridge, NJ, was arrested on Thursday after failing to pay a toll at the Outerbridge Crossing connecting Staten Island and Perth Amboy. Officials say Clicerio was driving a white Mercury SUV when he was pulled over and an officer discovered he had five EZ-Pass accounts and 323 violations, reports the AP. The fees and violations totaled $20,869. It's unclear whether Clicerio has an attorney who can comment on his behalf. Clicerio is charged with larceny and obstructing governmental administration, notes NJ.com.
