He fought the law / and the law won... (or did it?)

Barricade was the first robot to talk in Michael Bay's 2007 hit film Transformers and he proved one of the nastiest.  The Decepticon was capable of transforming into a Ford Motor Comp. (F) Mustang Saleen S281E police car, in order to avoid suspicion.  After proving a key antagonist to Optimus Prime's Autobots, this "crooked cop" was missing from the sequel but appeared in an extended cameo in 2011's Transformers: Dark of the Moon -- just long enough to get killed by gunfire by human troops on a counteroffensive.
 
Silly humans have been known to specially retrofit their cars to look like this dreaded Decepticon.  But usually they avoid having any words/logos/slogans that directly mirror those of police cars; for example, this 2007 Ford Mustang Saleen switched the "911" logo to "411".



A Massachusetts man turned his $99,968 USD Maserati GranTurismo into a bolder and more unusual take on Barricade and now he may pay the price.  The driver was pulled over police officers Braintree, Massachusetts after they reportedly mistook him for a real cop car.

Perhaps it was the black and white paint job.  Or maybe it was the "911" logo towards the front of the rear quarter panel... or the K9 on the rear pillar ... or the slogan "Speed Enforcement" on the rear bumper.  
 
Of course, there are telltale signs that hint that this is no police car.  First there are no emergency lights or extra antennas.  Second, the driver's side door is emblazoned with the word "Decepticon" and beneath that, the slogan "PUNISHENSLAVE".  And the rear quarter panel also reads "To punish and enslave..." and on the bottom has a hashtag "#halomafia".
 
The driver of the vehicle, in an interview with Anime News Network (ANN), said that the car was actually his wife's and that the Barricade getup was just the latest in a series of monthly plasti dips that he had been sporting over the summer.  The Barricade look was finished July 25, and the driver had been prowling the streets for two weeks without incident.

The driver contends his getup was an "approved of" plasti dip and that he wasn't impersonating police.

His luck ran out when he was stopped on Aug. 9 by Braintree patrol officer Blake Holt.  A local news source, The Patriot Ledger, reports:

Braintree Deputy Police Chief Wayne Foster said the as-yet unidentified town resident was summoned for a clerk magistrate hearing in Quincy District Court after a patrol officer stopped him in Braintree Square over the weekend...

The driver was charged with impersonating a police officer. Foster said Monday the owner’s court hearing hasn’t been sched
uled yet.

Foster said that at about 4 p.m. Saturday, patrol officer Blake Holt fell in behind the 2010 Maserati on Washington Street in Braintree Square.

He said Holt "didn’t know of any (police) department that had a Maserati," so he turned on his cruiser’s lights and stopped the Maserati...

Foster said the driver told Holt that he believed he was assisting the police "because other drivers noticed him and slowed down, thinking it was a police vehicle."

But ANN, who supposedly interviewed the driver claims this information was incorrect.  It writes:

The driver also says two other officers, a female and male, were there during the conversation and that he told them the design was approved. According to the driver, he was not arrested but was informed he may be brought to court for impersonating a police officer. The driver gave the police his address and that he would be seeking a lawyer. He states that he wasn't given any kind of ticket nor was he arrested.

The driver denies making [the] comments [claimed by Chief Foster], stating that he only meant that drivers slow down because his car is expensive, not because it looks like a police vehicle.

The driver received a summons to Quincy District Court on Monday and is being charged with a misdemeanor. The court date is set for Thursday, August 28 but the driver said it may be delayed until September because his lawyer is out of town. Nonetheless, the Maserati owner remains optimistic about his chances in court,

"My lawyer told me that we have a very big chance to win. He said he wouldn't worry about the case if he was me, since I have clean criminal and driving record. I don't even have a parking ticket."

Complaint against Barricade
A copy of the complaint the driver received last Monday [Image Source: ANN]

In the U.S. it's illegal to impersonate a police officer under various local, state, and federal statutes, however the exact definition of "impersonation" is rather ambiguous in some cases (such as this).  Artistic interpretation is often granted certain leniencies.  Thus the driver may indeed fare well in court (especially given that his vehicle selection suggests he can afford a decent lawyer).
 
That said, we're guessing he won't be taking his "Decepticon" sports car out for a spin anymore and might look to get this month's plasti dip done a little early.
 
The biggest irony?  By choosing to use a Maserati for his take on Barricade the driver actually likely made his car look a little less like local cops.  Had he used the Ford Mustang look adopted in the Michael Bay films, he likely would look more like local law enforcement, which (as noted) uses a mix of Fords and Chryslers.

In Arizona, they sell retired cop cars to the public. If you buy a Tempe, Peoria, Mesa, Goodyear, Buckeye, Prescott, Flagstaff, Gilbert or Tucson police cruiser it will likely have the black and white paint and the search light by the side view mirror and most likely the push bar on the front as well. You are not required at all to repaint it. I don't see how this guy is any different than that.

And I see no reason to change 911 on the side. It's not like he's rerouting the phone lines. Are people gonna think that someone bought that phone number and not know who to call for help?

I agree. Most police auction cars resemble police cars more than this Maserati ever will. Most of them still have the department colors, spot lights and interceptor logos on them. My buddy in high school bought a police auction patrol car and it still had the performance lever underneath the dash that re-metered the carburetor. The Caprice was ridiculously fast with that lever pulled down.

Seems as though the "deputy chief" is basing his entire case on the paint job/decals (nothing illegal) and this alleged statement:
quote:
Foster said the driver told Holt that he believed he was assisting the police "because other drivers noticed him and slowed down, thinking it was a police vehicle.
Since he never claimed to actually be a cop, he was not then impersonating one, solely by driving the vehicle. Unless the driver was making traffic stops for speeding drivers, he's not guilty of any crime.

Hell, I've slowed down before, for a person on a motorcycle that looked too much like a cop on a bike. Until I realized they weren't, of course...likely the same as people who slowed down for this car, until they realized it wasn't actually a police vehicle.

You don't have to say the words "I'm a cop" to be guilty of impersonating an officer. Just like you don't have to say the words "I'm robbing this bank" to be a bank robber. Police have to look at the totality of the circumstances in every case, and that's what they did here.

The police decided against making an arrest on the scene or impounding the vehicle, and instead forwarded their report to the DA's office, where a prosecuting attorney screened the case and determined, from his experience and his understanding of the law, that there was enough evidence to proceed.

So now the guy who made a foolish decision while living out a childhood fantasy and/or trying to get attention will get his day in court before a judge. It sounds like he has a pretty clean past, and it's not like this is the crime of the century, so I would not be surprised if the judge is very lenient on him and the charge is dismissed.

The statute I found says that somebody who pretends to be a police officer, and acts as such, has committed the crime.

The person was driving around in a car that was intentionally modified to look like a police car, and he then put his foot in his mouth by saying that he was assisting police, by causing traffic to slow down when they noticed him.

So it's not just that the car was decorated like a cop car. It's the fact that he was driving it in traffic. If he had just been displaying the car at a car show, even if it actually said POLICE, it sounds like he would have been fine, since he could not have been said to be "acting" as a police officer.

The matter is debatable either way, but the officers and the DA both felt like the elements of the crime were present. And DA's aren't in the habit of bringing charges that can't be defended in court. It doesn't look good during election time if they have lost too many cases.

Part IV, Title I, Chapter 268, Section 33:

quote:
Whoever falsely assumes or pretends to be a justice of the peace, notary public, sheriff, deputy sheriff, medical examiner, associate medical examiner, constable, police officer, probation officer, or examiner, investigator or other officer appointed by the registrar of motor vehicles, or inspector, investigator or examiner of the department of public utilities or the department of telecommunications and cable, or investigator or other officer of the alcoholic beverages control commission, or investigator or other official of the bureau of special investigations, or examiner, investigator or other officer of the department of revenue, and acts as such or requires a person to aid or assist him in a matter pertaining to the duty of such officer, shall be punished by a fine of not more than four hundred dollars or by imprisonment for not more than one year.

Whether he actually said that "he was helping police" is strongly in dispute. The police did report that, but the client denies it.
English is not his first language, so there was certainly some confusion. But that may certainly be part of the reason they wrote the citation.

Whether he made the statement isn't what we were discussing. You claimed that the stated facts of the case did not fit the statue, and I claim that they do.

I'm inclined to believe the police in this particular case, since they have already demonstrated discretion by the way they handled things. If they were really just out to get the guy, they could have arrested him on the spot and impounded his car.

But apparently they were not upset enough about the incident to do that, but they are going to put themselves on the line by fabricating statements? Sure, I guess it's possible, but it doesn't make sense to me in this case.

I'm a cop in Indiana, and in my state there actually is a law that requires two-tone former police cars to be re-painted before they are driven on the road by a private citizen. IC 5-22-22-9:

quote:
(a) If a purchasing agency disposes of a law enforcement vehicle that is a model year of 1994 or after and is painted in a color scheme of more than one (1) color by transferring the vehicle to:
(1) a person who will operate the vehicle on a public highway in Indiana, the person must repaint the vehicle in:
(A) a monochrome color scheme; or
(B) a color scheme that does not duplicate the color scheme of an Indiana law enforcement vehicle;


I actually have pulled over black/white and brown/tan ex-cop cars before for this reason. But I usually don't bother, since in most cases, the former cop cars are such a POS, and the person driving them looks so scruffy, that there's little chance anybody would mistake it for a current cop car.

I doubt that Indiana is the only state with such a law, since most states have a lot of laws that are very similar. But in this case with the Maserati, the charge was Impersonating a Police Officer, which is surely a crime in every state.

And for those who say the cops overreacted, I see it differently. The cops could have used their discretion to make an outright arrest, and impound the vehicle until the case has been adjudicated, but instead it sounds like they let him and his car go, and just sent their report to the DA's office, so that a prosecuting attorney could review the facts, and make a determination of whether probable cause existed.

While I don't think the vehicle owner had any bad intent, I think he was foolish to decorate his car that way without getting the advise of the local police department, the DA's office, or his attorney. The police or DA's office may have advised him against it, but then again, they may have also given him the thumbs up if he explained his intentions properly.

There are very good reasons for the laws against impersonating a police officer. And even though the readers on here might think its obvious that the car was not an actual police car, I think there would be a surprising number of people who would assume it was. Especially in Beverly Hills. There have been many times over the years that I have seen publicity pieces on how local departments used an exotic vehicle that had been seized in a drug bust, and dressed it up as a cop car as a public-relations stunt.

The point is, when you, or your wife, or your daughter are being pulled over on a dark road at night, you want to have confidence that the person in the other vehicle is actually a cop, and not some sicko.

And yes, when cops see vehicles that are questionable in this regard, they will stop them to make sure that everything checks out.

I've pulled over several vehicles over the years for that very reason. In one case, it was an unmarked, solid-color maroon POS former-cop-car Crown Vic that was being driven by somebody who didn't look like a cop, and it had rear deck lights. The license plate was also expired. Turned out the vehicle belonged to the county Coroner's Office, and was being driven by an employee, so it was all good. (But they still got a warning for the expired plate!)

I am also familiar with several cases where somebody in a former cop car, usually a younger male, is going around pretending to be a cop, and even pulling people over. Those people, of course, get arrested. Unlike the person in this story.

So what you are saying is that you are making a judgement and letting someone skate even though they are technically breaking the law...

Is that really your job as a police officer? You are not there to say "Ah Shucks, that's alright, happens all the time", you are there to uphold the law and technically you should ticket those people shouldn't you?

Face it, the police in Mass were iffy on the whole thing otherwise they would have ticketed him then and there. The DA is just looking at the fine and probably flexing his muscles. Also as a police officer you probably will not find much sympathy here or most places for that matter.

Congratulations on your reading comprehension. That is exactly what I'm saying. And hopefully you would be among the first one to complain if it was otherwise. I know I would be.

I don't know where you live, but in the real world, that is what police officers have to do. How far do you reckon a cop would get down the road if he stopped every car that went 1 MPH over the speed limit or stopped every car that didn't come to a complete stop or didn't use a turn signal?

A jurisdiction will typically have a limited number of units available to respond to emergencies. If they're all tied up constantly with petty matters, then nobody will be available to respond on the three-car accident with entrapment, or the armed robbery at the pharmacy, or the call for help from a woman being battered by her drunk boyfriend, or other serious crimes.

We should all be grateful that police officers frequently use their discretion to put police resources where they matter the most. It does make it hard sometimes responding to emergency calls and taking care of everything else with a limited number of officers, but I would not want to live in a society where there were enough police to address every violation of the law. Would you?

It seems like people don't engage their brains for even a few seconds of contemplation before posting something critical toward police.

Yeah, playing devil's advocate for you.

It was just the fact that you supported the guy getting in trouble for it when you yourself let similar incidents go.

I do get that officers have to sometimes enforce the "spirit" of the law and let some things slide. However I also see where people will take advantage of that and ruin it for the rest of us with the local police.

It's all good. I'm just glad to live in a country where we can feel free to question and even criticize the police.

Just to be clear, I wouldn't say that I support the guy getting in trouble. Like I said somewhere above, I don't think the guy actually had any ill intent, *but* I do think he was a little foolish or naive in thinking there may not be a potential problem. I would not feel comfortable driving that car if I was not a cop.

But if I was the one who made the stop, and the guy was reasonable and seemed to be an upstanding citizen and I was confident that he wasn't meaning to cause trouble, then I would probably just give him a warning to not have it on the street anymore.

And I would maybe recommend that he get it cleared by the admin of the local PD and/or the DA's office if he still wanted to drive it with the visual package.

And as far as selective enforcing of the laws, that is how the system is intentionally setup to work. Most criminal statutes just define a particular crime, without any special instructions to police. But there are a few, select laws, that actually state that "police shall...arrest". In Indiana, Domestic Battery is one such law.

But in most cases, police are left with discretion, as are DA's, judges, jurists and practically everyone else involved in the Criminal Justice system.

It was Fiat that bought the company and thus saved it just as they did with Ferrari a couple of decades earlier.
As for which companies are for the newly rich they all qualify these days, but back in time both Masserati and Lamborghini was really the classy ones and Ferrari was the loud one(being more about racing than luxury). Masserati has something like 30 years of history on Ferrari, so while less know today they really is the brand of the three that is the one to have.

Being a stable-mate with Ferrari now, means that Maserati uses the same guts/chassis, but gets the refined (read: less boy-racer, hot-wheels wannabee) looks.
