Tolls are a pain in the ass, but they're also a fact of life, especially in and around New York City. Benjamin McClellan decided that it was better not to pay the tolls required to travel the city's many bridges and tunnels. Only it wasn't.

Police arrested McClellan Tuesday when he blew through yet another toll booth without paying. He was also driving on a suspended license — for not paying a traffic ticket, surprise, surprise — and had changed the numbers on his license plate with a few strategically placed pieces of electrical tape.


Losing your license for dumb shit is one thing, but losing your license when you depend upon it for your rent check? That's a whole new level of stupid.
