MEDFORD - A Pennsylvania man was arrested Sunday for driving on the Long Island Expressway with a license that had been suspended 88 times.

Eric Dunbar was pulled over for driving 86 mph in the westbound lanes between exits 66 and 65 shortly after 12 p.m., police say.

Dunbar was in possession of a Pennsylvania license, but a check revealed that he also had a New York state license that had been suspended 88 times on 25 dates for failing to answer traffic tickets.

Dunbar, 43, was arrested and charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle. He was also issued summonses for speeding and having more than one unexpired license. His vehicle, a 2016 Dodge Challenger, was impounded.
