NEWS Man fools police with fake car made of snow
An officer went to give the illegally parked car a ticket only to find out it wasn't a car at all
It might be obvious for a police officer to target an illegally parked vehicle but not all is as it seems.
A man in Canada fooled officers with his "Back to the Future" auto made out of snow.
Well, it does if you're 33-year-old Montreal machinist and artist Simon Laprise of L.S.D.
The DeLorean was made famous by the Back to The Future films. In a nice touch, Laprise found a windshield wiper and put that on the fake windshield to complete the illusion. In other, two police cars are at the scene.
Instead, they left him a ticket that read "You made our evening". The photos show not just one, but eventually two police cars investigating this "ghost parker", and the officers may have initially thought it was a real vehicle covered in snow.
The 33-year-old machinist's prank was reportedly plowed clean by Montreal sanitation workers the next day but not before it gave police a amusing story to tell this winter.
When the snow removers arrived the next morning, they didn't seem fooled by Laprise's DeLorean snow sculpture, as it was completely destroyed as they cleared the street.
