Should have used a PPV

A man was arrested early Monday morning after Tulsa police said he pulled over an officer in his fake police vehicle and then tried to escape.

For sale (soon) Heron White SS. Slight roof damage due to light bar.

I don't get what these impersonator dudes be thinking. I know some real LEOs that don't like walking up to a car at night because of the dangers associated with it. I bet if one of these fake cops pull over a real criminal and it goes sideways, the fantasy will be cured quickly.

Well, at least the mod looks darn-ass cool on the SS. Apparently, the owner got away with it until the colored lights were activated.

Trivia: There is one forum member that has a black SS with PPV style wheels, and it's a dead ringer for an unmarked unit.

Why? I don't understand the reasoning behind doing something like this.

At first I just couldn't help but laugh. But this is just disrespectful, lazy policing. Not even an LT???

As often as I see stories of cops being shot during traffic stops, I would've been more than a little amused if this guy got shot pulling a stunt like this.

On a sad note- that poor white SS.

Believe it, or not, I did this before...
(Spoiler alert, it's dumb,'s really dumb).

About 50 years ago, my best friend had a vehicle with a spotlight on it. One day after he washed it, he decided to paint the glass of the spot light red. He made it very red using multiple coats of paint. What was this vehicle??? Why, it was a lowered "49 Chevy pickup!

That night, he had a date and asked to use my car, a '62 Chevy Bel Air, we would trade for the night. That night, I was riding around in his truck, then the idea struck me to approach cars from behind, put the red spotlight on 'em and pull 'em over. After they pulled over, I would turn the light off and just pull away, laughing so hard that I could hardly drive(I'm laughing about it as I type this)! I did this for about a half hour or so, and then called it a night. He brought my car back and we trade back and he went home. I did not tell him the fun I had with his truck!

The next day, my friend got a visit from the police, and they demanded to see his truck! Fortunately, he had just cleaned the light off! They examined it and could see traces of the red paint, but, they decided not to arrest him! All I can say is, that incident really tested our friendship, but we still laugh about it today, when I see him.
