Man paints his car to look like police car
Police patrol cars are usually Fords or Chryslers. But not Maseratis. Those are luxury cars from Italy.
A patrolman spotted a Maserati that resembled a police cruiser. So he pulled it over.
Deputy Chief Wayne Foster tells The Patriot Ledger newspaper the Maserati was painted black and white. It had a police-style shield on the doors. It also had police-related decals.
The door shield wasn't accompanied by the usual police phrase "Protect and Serve." Instead, the Maserati's door shields said "Decepticons punish and enslave."
The driver told the officer that he was actually assisting police. Drivers noticed him and slowed down, he said.
He was charged with impersonating a police officer. Impersonating means pretending to be.
