    Iverson Gets At Least 65 Parking Tickets Since March 2001

    PHILADELPHIA -- NBA superstar Allen Iverson owes more than $1,700 in parking fines, the city parking authority said.

    Since March 2001, Iverson has received at least 65 parking tickets for $4,500 on his cars, the Philadelphia Daily News reported Thursday. He already paid $2,800, records show.

    The $1,700 stems from four $300 tickets plus fines that Iverson received when he left his Rolls Royce in a handicapped spot at an airport parking garage for a week in late May, Clorise E. Wynn, director of the city's Bureau of Administrative Adjudication, told The Associated Press on Thursday.

    The city moved the Rolls to a different spot, but cannot legally tow a vehicle from the airport garage, she said.

    Iverson is in Athens to play in the Olympics. His personal attorney, Larry Woodward, declined comment.

    Also, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is investigating whether the star's uncle, Greg Iverson, was properly given a handicapped placard. Iverson's cars -- among them a $325,000 Rolls Royce Phantom, a Cadillac Escalade and a 1999 Mercedes Benz - have been seen in handicapped spots at Philadelphia International Airport, outside the 76ers' practice facility and a downtown apartment building garage.

    Joan Nissley, a PennDOT spokeswoman, said the agency's medical unit was looking into the placard.

    Greg Iverson, 41, defended parking in handicapped spots, noting that he had the placard. He didn't answer when asked by a Daily News reporter what his handicap is.
