Police Arrest Man for Driving with a Hand-Drawn License Plate
They say art is in the eye of the beholder. Too bad that doesn’t include counterfeit license plates.
The York Regional Police, outside Toronto, Canada, arrested a man who was found driving around using a hand-drawn license place at a R.I.D.E. (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) checkpoint.
The man was already under prohibition, a condition for his release for a previous crime. Despite his artistry (or lack thereof), he was charged with violating a court order, possession of property obtained by crime, operating a vehicle without a license, and using an unauthorized license plate.
“The good news? He wasn’t impaired,” the YRP said on their Twitter account. “The better news? This artistic masterpiece was ours to discover. It was on the front of his car, painstakingly crafted to match the stolen plate on the rear.”
