A Florida truck driver has been jailed for four days in Pennsylvania for not being able to pay a portion of the $17,000 fine he got for driving an overweight rig loaded with gas drilling pipe.

Francisco Amareles-Amareles, of Hialeah, was arrested Saturday after police saw him drive his 40-ton rig onto a narrow road with a 10-ton limit.
