This has to be some kind of a record.

A Boynton Beach, Florida man has been arrested on more than 50 different traffic citations...ALL IN ONE DAY!!!!

Elvis Alonzo Barrett, 46, fled from police who were trying to stop him for a traffic violation. He then ran through multiple red lights, crashed into another car, and crashed into a fence. When he was eventually stopped he was found to be in possession of crack cocaine, a crack pipe, and police discovered that his license was suspended.

This article states that in addition to charges of fleeing and eluding and reckless driving, Mr. Barrett was issued more than 50 traffic violations including speeding, running red lights, and not wearing a seat belt.

What type of retainer do you need for this one? It will take three hours just to sift through the tickets to see what he was actually charged with!!

Thats pretty interesting and unique in that I do not think I have ever heard of an individual being charged with all the traffic violations they committed when fleeing. Pretty smart if you ask me. Just think of all the minor traffic charges O.J. would have had against him and then found guilty. I almost have to think there is something that states that practice is frowned upon.
