You plate to see it.
A man suspected of driving while intoxicated in northwest Wisconsin was rolling in a car with fake license plates made from a beer box, police said.
Police said the man was stopped and flunked a sobriety test after cops received reports of a vehicle swerving in Chippewa Falls on Nov. 15, according to ABC affiliate WQOW.
The arrest led to the discovery of the car’s counterfeit plates, which displayed Hamm’s Brewery branding when turned over, according to a brief video posted on social media by the Chippewa Falls Police Department.
Hamm’s is brewed by MillerCoors.
The suspect, Nicholas Layton, had not been formally charged, WQOW reported Wednesday. Police Chief Matt Kelm told the TV station that the hand-painted fake plates were convincing, and the cops only foiled them after speaking to the true owner of the car registered to the license number.
