Man in trouble w/ police for painting car like a Transformer

Before you guys ask.. I don't know the guy.

Jessie Vigil's black-and-white car sports a red-and-blue emergency bar across the top and the word "police" painted on the doors.

Vigil, however, isn't a cop.

Law enforcement agencies say what he's done with his car isn't illegal as long as he doesn't act like a police officer.

He started decorating his 2007 Ford Mustang last summer to look like the police cruiser in the "Transformers" movie because his 7-year-old son, Thomas, was fond of the film.

"My intent was to re-create the movie car," said Vigil, a 35-year-old disabled veteran from the war in Iraq. "When I came back from Iraq, I tried to spoil him. I wasn't the best dad before."

That is awesome! Hopefully they don't determine that it is "illegal".

The only thing I could see his car having an effect on is to cause others to slow down when they're around the car (as they may think it is a real police car).
