Vegas man paints car like police cruiser

Wed Mar 12, 4:01 PM ET

LAS VEGAS, N.M. - 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.

  新墨西哥州、拉斯维加斯--Jessie Vigil的黑白颜色汽车在上方佩戴了红-蓝警灯;在车门上画上了“警察”两个字。不过Vigil并不是警察。 执法机构称他对车的改造行为只要自己不假扮警察便并不违反(美国)法律。

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."

He said he called the district attorney's office beforehand and spoke to Chief Deputy District Attorney Joe Ulibarri, who tried to discourage his decorating scheme but couldn't find anything in the law that would stop Vigil as long as he didn't impersonate an officer.


  35岁从伊拉克回来的伤残老兵Vigil说:"我想重新再现电影中的那辆车。 当我从伊莱克回来后,我努力要宠着儿子。过去我不是最好的父亲“

  他说他事先打电话给了区律师办公室并和区主律师Joe Ulibarri谈过。律师之前想阻碍他的装修计划但是只要他不假冒警官,那么就

Ulibarri said a state law prevents people from mimicking state police cars, which are painted black and white. But he also said the state police sell their old cars to private citizens without changing the colors.


"Are we violating our own law by not repainting them?" he asked.


He called the state law vague, and noted that normal state police cars aren't Mustangs.


"I don't think this guy has any intent to mimic a state police officer," Ulibarri said. "I'm not hearing that he is causing a problem and arresting people."


A close look shows Vigil's car isn't a police cruiser. Instead of the familiar slogan "To protect and serve," it carries a motto: "To punish and enslave" on the side. Instead of telling people to dial 911 for emergencies, the Mustang advises them to "dial 411 for theater information."

  近距离观察显示Vigil的汽车并不是巡警车。车身上面不是”保护和服务“的标语,而是:“惩罚和奴役”。 不是叫人们遇到紧急情况打911;这辆“野马”建议人们“拨打411获得剧院信息”

He originally marked his car, "Transformers police" but later changed it to just "police." He also added what appears to be a bar of emergency lights, but said they're not actual lights.

Vigil acknowledged people have mixed feelings about his car.

  最初,Ulibarri在车身做上的是“变形金刚警察”但是后来改为仅仅是“警察” 他还加上了看上去是警灯的条杠,但是说其实并不是真的灯。

  Vigil 承认人们对他的车的感受不一。

State police Capt. Craig Martin said the agency is "concerned for the safety of people who think he is an officer and think they may get help from him.

"People around town know who he is, but not those people on the interstate."

  州警察队长Craig Martin说警察局”担心那些认为他是警官从而希望从他那里求助的人的安全“
