Cops: Man nabbed in New York had license suspended 81 times

OAKDALE, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say police in New York this week arrested a 21-year-old man who had his driver’s license suspended 81 times.

Suffolk County police say Dillon Garcia, of Medford, was pulled over Wednesday on the Sunrise Highway in Oakdale.

A police spokeswoman says suspensions usually occur after someone fails to pay fines or appear in court to answer charges. She said she didn’t have
specifics on Garcia’s case and didn’t know how many summonses he had received.

Each summons that went unpaid could have resulted in a single suspension.
