Braintree: Police pull over heavily decaled Maserati made to look like police vehicle

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.
