(Newser) – A New Jersey man was arrested Tuesday for allegedly making a mockery of the entire principle of bridge tolls. USA Today reports police pulled over 42-year-old Levert Caldwell after they say he didn't pay the toll at the state's Outerbridge Crossing. They discovered Caldwell had more than $20,000 in unpaid tolls and fees on his E-ZPass account and may not have paid a bridge toll in six years. In fact, it wasn't clear if Caldwell even had an E-ZPass in his Jeep. Furthermore, police say his registration and insurance had lapsed. Caldwell was charged with larceny, obstructing the administration of government, and traffic violations, according to NJ.com. His Jeep was impounded. (Read more tolls stories.)
