A 28-year-old New York woman was arrested after she was caught driving around town with a hilariously bad handmade cardboard license plate.
Amanda Schweickert was busted Wednesday after police saw a car with no front license plate and an obviously fake back license plate.
After pulling the vehicle over, a deputy discovered that she had a suspended license and no insurance.
She was charged with one felony count of possession of a forged instrument, a misdemeanor count of driving with a suspended license, and three other traffic offenses.
Police posted to their Facebook Thursday that she was being held at the Erie County Holding Center in lieu of $400 bail.
The sheriffâ€™s office captioned their post, “In case you are wondering, homemade cardboard license plates are NOT legal.”
Some commenters thought the felony charge was a tad harsh, but others were just highly amused.
â€œCan you tell me how you did not laugh when pulling this individual over? This made my morning!â€ one wrote.
â€œI’m going to make you a Vermont plate out of maple syrup and bacon,â€ another person posted.
