Interest Man With A Decepticon Maserati Pulled Over For Impersonating Police

A Massachusetts man may find himself appearing in front of Quincy District Court after his modified Maserati landed him in hot water with law enforcement. The unnamed owner of the vehicle modified the US$99,698 car to resemble Barricade from Michael Bay's 2007 Transformers film.
While we doubt the car had the same transforming abilities to pose a threat to Shia Labeouf and the Massachusetts populous at large, its color scheme did resemble a police car. The owner was pulled over after a police officer mistook the luxury car for a legitimate police vehicle and took the owner in for impersonating a police officer.
Braintree Deputy Police Chief Wayne Foster said the owner offered that he was actually assisting police “because other drivers noticed him and slowed down, thinking it was a police vehicle.”
The modified Maserati was black and white with "Speed Enforcement" lettering written on the back along with what appears to be a police car number and "K-9" on the side. The give away is the large "Decepticons" printed on the door and the logo from the movie "to punish and enslave" written under the window. Oh, and that it's a Maserati.
