NEW YORK (AP) — 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, New Jersey, was arrested on Thursday after failing to pay a toll at the Outerbridge Crossing connecting Staten Island and Pert 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.

The fees and violations totaled $20,869.

It’s unclear whether Clicerio has an attorney who can comment on his behalf.

Clicerio faces larceny and obstructing governmental administration charges.
