This land is your land, this land is...well, it's The Man's land. One budding entrepreneur in Brooklyn learned that the hard way yesterday as his nearly decade-long scam came to an end. WNBC reports that Darren Miller has been using four acres of city property in East New York as a parking lot which he charged customers $200/month to use. "Hundreds of tractor-trailers and other vehicles were ordered removed Tuesday when police moved in to shut the site down." Miller was arrested and charged with trespassing for refusing to close the lot, but his lawyer contends that this "small businessman" should own the property by now under "adverse possession," something he's been fighting in court since 2005. Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes will be holding a news conference today, as Miller is arraigned in criminal court. Fox News has more on the bizarre case.
