Hopkinton Police in Massachusetts arrested a man driving a green Buick with a fake license plate. Odd as it sounds, it would have been a usual arrest if it was a fake license plate that mimicked Massachusetts state-issued license plate. However, it became a very unusual case because the plate was made from a pizza box. The arrest was made on Sunday for "operating an uninsured and unregistered" motor vehicle and "attaching fake homemade plates".

The police department warned the other drivers humorously on its Facebook page with the photo of the car with its fake pizza box license plate. 

"Here is a little advice to those aspiring to make their own license plates", Hopkinton Police Department wrote, "1. Don't. 2. But if you do, make sure not to use cardboard from a pizza box and magic markers."

It added, "Charges for this creative operator include operating an uninsured and unregistered vehicle and attaching "fake home made" plates."

The name of the driver was not released.
