    A New Jersey man who avoided paying tolls nearly 900 times and owes more than $56,000 in unpaid tolls and fees has been arrested, police said Saturday. 

    An officer stopped Alesandel Rodriguez's car Friday morning after it failed to post a payment in an EZ-Pass lane on the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police said.

    The car was missing front and rear license plates, and a temporary New York tag inside the vehicle had expired, authorities said.

    Further investigation found the Teaneck man's EZ-Pass accounts were revoked, showing 888 violations and about $56,240 in outstanding fees. Authorities also learned there was a warrant for his arrest.
