Police patrol cars are usually Fords or Chryslers, not Maseratis.
So when a patrolman in Braintree, Massachusetts, spotted a 2010 Maserati resembling a police cruiser over the weekend, he pulled it over.
Deputy Chief Wayne Foster says the luxury Italian vehicle’s body was painted black and white with a police-style shield on the doors, and police-related decals.
Foster said the door shield wasn’t accompanied by the usual police phrase “Protect and Serve,” but rather with “Decepticons punish and enslave,” which is apparently a phrase from “the bad guys from Transformers,” said Foster.
Also decaled on the car was “K-9″, “Emergency 9-1-1 Response”, “#HALOMAFIA”, “#COPSERATI”, “Police” and “Speed Enforcement”
The driver told the officer who pulled him over that he was actually assisting police “because other drivers noticed him and slowed down, thinking it was a police vehicle.”
The driver, whose name was not made public, was summoned to court to face a charge of impersonating a police officer.
