We’ve all heard the common phrase of how “art is in the eye of the beholder.” But when New York State Police spotted a false inspection sticker on a vehicle during a traffic stop, it was enough to be considered a crime against traffic laws as well as art.

In a press release from the NY State Police, on July 6th, troopers observed a vehicle making several traffic violations in the town on Union, NY. Upon pulling over the vehicle, the officers discovered that the driver, 44-year-old Reghan L. Parker did not possess a valid driver’s license. Further investigation revealed that she was also in possession of suspected methamphetamine.

Inspecting a Fake Inspection Sticker

On top of those two strikes, troopers also discovered that the vehicle had a yellow piece of paper taped to the windshield that was written with what is believed to be a black crayon to pose as a New York Inspection sticker.

“Nice try BUT… this doesn’t give you a pass for your New York State Inspection,” the NY State Police wrote on their Twitter page.

State troopers arrested Reghan L. Parker for the class “D” felony of Possession of a Forged Instrument, driving without a valid driver’s license, and a misdemeanor for Criminal Possession of a 7th-degree Controlled Substance.

While under the First Amendment, art and freedom of expression is not a crime. However, forging a State Inspection sticker certainly is, regardless of how bad one’s drawing skills are.
