The student had eluded police for the past two years but they finally caught up with him and have made him cough up 256,000 dirhams ($69,754) for "normal" traffic violations, the Khaleej Times reported.

Additionally, he also must pay 100,000 dirhams ($27,247) to recover his car which was impounded by police, the paper said.
