Police in Brazil say they have caught an Italian who managed to amass $259,000 in traffic fines and other penalties linked to his van.

Police say they arrested 62-year-old engineer Roberto Cintio at his office after a 10-day investigation.
Most of Cintio's fines were for speeding, which are levied in Brazilian cities by radar cameras without police stopping the vehicle. Other fines were for parking, not paying vehicle property taxes and other infractions.
A police statement said Cintio might have evaded police by using false IDs, several of which were found with him.

There was no indication how long it took Cintio to build up the fines on his nine-year-old General Motors van.


Zevon Warren: The Long Arm Of The Law


by Warren Zevon c. 1989 Zevon Music/BMI

When I was young, times were hard
When I got older it was worse
First words I ever heard:
"Nobody move, nobody get hurt"
It's the long arm, it's the strong arm
It's the long arm of the law
It's the long arm, it's the strong arm
It's the long arm of the law
After the war in Paraguay
Back in 1999
I was laying low in Lima
Working both sides of the borderline
It's the long arm, it's the strong arm
