One-man crime spree

Something tells me that this guy's car insurance rates are going to be going up ever so slightly in the near future...
Authorities say a Martin County man already has a lengthy criminal record but that didn't stop him from racking up 50 traffic citations; all in a single day.

46-year-old Elvis Alonzo Barrett allegedly fled from police who were trying to stop him for a traffic violation Thursday morning. Police say he ran through red lights, crashed into another car and a fence.

Police also say they found crack cocaine and a crack pipe in his car.
That might just have had something to do with the rest of his problems.

Anyway, I know that the cops claim that they don't have quotas for writing traffic tickets, but this had to be the lead officer's lucky day. Assuming no innocent people were injured, that is.
