BRONX, N.Y. (PIX11) -- A Bronx woman accused of marrying 10 men over the span of 11 years was arrested for not paying for a subway ride.

Police arrested 38-year-old Liana Barrientos after she went through an emergency exit to board the subway at the 149th Street Grand Concourse station Friday afternoon.

Barrientos, along with a family member, were returning from the Bronx County Courthouse after she pleaded not guilty to offering false instruments for filing.

The false statements are an application for a marriage license and a signed marriage license created in 2010.

Barrientos filed that she had never been married. Investigators later found that she had allegedly been married 10 times. She is believed to still be married to four of the men.

For Friday's incident, she was arrested and charged with theft of service and criminal trespass.
