N.Y. police arrest city's most-wanted motorist

November 14, 1994|By New York Times News Service

NEW YORK -- Police have nabbed the city's top scofflaw: a phantom motorist whose license has been suspended 633 times since 1990, once every two or three days.

Leroy Linen, 41, was in custody yesterday after being pulled over because of his faux license plate -- a hand-lettered piece of cardboard stuck in the rear window of his car. He accidentally gave his real name.

"We took him into the station house and put his name into the computer and out comes hundreds and hundreds of citations. It took an hour and 45 minutes to print it all out," said Officer Larry Edwards, one of the arresting officers.
