NYC cabbie accused of sneaking past bridge toll 3,000 times

A New York City cab driver is facing criminal charges after prosecutors say he snuck past toll booths on the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge more than 3,000 times.

The Queens District Attorney’s office alleges Rodolfo Sanchez tailgated other, paying drivers as they entered the bridge so he could pass the toll plaza before the gates dropped.

According to WCBS, Sanchez snuck onto the bridge from August 2012 to April 2014. He ducked a total of more than $28,240 in toll payments. (Via YouTube / WC Westwood)

“Sanchez says he did it to save money for his family. He faces up to seven years in prison if convicted.” (Via WABC)

The New York Times explains investigators discovered Sanchez thanks to an expired E-ZPass transmitter in his cab.

Authorities matched the tracking data from the transmitter to video footage of taxi cabs ducking tolls and to cab company records of when Sanchez was driving.

“He is charged with grand larceny, theft of services and criminal possession of stolen property.”(Via MSNBC)

Sanchez was arraigned Thursday and released on bond. His next court date is May 22.

Gwen Stefani to replace Christina Aguilera on 'The Voice?'

‚ÄčIn with one blonde singer and out with another. If the rumors are true, everyone’s favorite Hollaback Girl could be headed to “The Voice.”

Several news outlets are reporting Gwen Stefani will replace veteran judge Christina Aguilera on Season 7 of the hit show. (Via Hollywood LifePerez HiltonThe Wrap

The timing makes sense — Aguilera announced she was pregnant with her second child in February, meaning she’d be eight or nine months along by the time the new season kicks off in June. (Via NBC / "The Voice")

‚ÄčAs for Stefani, she too has been busy with her family. In February, she gave birth to her third child with hubby Gavin Rossdale. (Via CoolNews.TV

And assuming the rumors are true, she won’t be the only new addition to “The Voice.” It's rumored Pharrell Williams has been tapped to replace CeeLo Green. (Via Columbia Records / Pharrell Williams)

It would be something of a reunion for the duo. They collaborated on Stefani’s hit single “Hollaback Girl” back in 2004. (Via Interscope Records / Gwen Stefani)

The No Doubt singer will also join coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton — both of whom are expected to return. (Via YouTube / Celebified)

According to TMZ, Stefani is reportedly only signed on for one season. Aguilera will be back for Season 8.

There's still no official confirmation from NBC — even though many outlets say Stefani’s contract is a done deal. A rep for the network told Us Weekly "We haven't made any decisions at this point."

Man claims he found Loch Ness Monster with... Apple Maps?

‚ÄčA Loch Ness Monster enthusiast claimed Friday that he found proof of the monster’s existence in the one place nobody thought to look: Apple Maps.

So, yeah. That’s it. The mighty Nessie — the famed, majestic sea monster! Or just the wake from a speed boat. 

After monster hunter Andy Dixon told the Daily Mail of his discovery, it was soon confirmed with an "objective" analysis by Gary Campbell of the Official Loch Ness Monster Club.

Campbell added, "Unless there have been secret submarine trials going on in the loch, the size of the object would make it likely to be Nessie."

And Dixon told the Mail he was excited to collect further proof. "I was a believer in Nessie even before this but I had never been. Now I am so excited, I can't wait to get up north and pay a visit - with a camera of course."

And you can count Google in on the Loch Ness conspiracy as Nessie does not appear on Google Maps satellite images. But some are citing the fact that Dixon found the image on Apple Maps as proof that… there is no proof.

The inconsistent app endured a famously tortured rollout in 2012, leading drivers in all the wrong directions and featuring some hilarious visual gaffes. The reaction was so bad that Apple CEO Tim Cook issued an apology to customers. (Via Fox NewsTumblr)

But… maybe this is Maps’ turning point? As BGR says, "While you may curse at Apple Maps for giving you the wrong directions to your local pizza joint, you’ll find that it’s all worthwhile once it helps you find Bigfoot or the lost city of Atlantis."

Dixon’s Nessie sighting breaks up a drought for fans of the mythical beast — last year, for the first time in 90 years, there were zero viable sightings of the monster. And Dixon, who also records sightings, tells the BBC that the monster has been “seen” over 1,000 times in the last 1,500 years.

But in 2013, the three most prominent Nessie reports were dismissed as a wave, a photo not actually taken at Loch Ness and a duck.
