Police said around 4 p.m. Friday, Slockbower was pulled over in Weehawken at the Lincoln Tunnel Toll Booth by a Port Authority officer. The 2006 white Toyota Scion he was driving was in a toll lane and, according to the Port Authority Police Department, an officer recognized him as a habitual toll violator.
