New York targets 20 worst deadbeat parents

NEW YORK, Aug. 18 (UPI) -- New York City is talking tough to parents behind on child support, issuing subpoenas and garnishing salaries, a report said Monday.

The stepped-up action comes after the city's Human Resources Administration took over the hunt for child-support shirkers from the Administration for Children's Services, launching an aggressive field investigation for the parents on the city's "Deadbeat Hall of Shame" list.

The roster names 19 men and one woman who owe a combined $3 million in back support, the New York Post said.

Its No. 1 dodger is Dr. David Adams, who owes a staggering $1.46 million -- one-third of the entire "Hall of Shame" debt. Adams is believed to have bolted for Israel.

Former physician Howard Bezoza, the city's No. 2 dodger, reportedly owes a whopping $375,212 for his two kids; and Tonya Pinkins, a Tony-winning actress, is said to be $104,680 in arrears for her two children.
