Wienermobile gets grilled by Arizona police

You just can’t drive a giant hot dog around these days without getting crap from the cops. Police in Tuscon pulled the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile over on Wednesday afternoon and ran the plates to make sure it was street legal. After the “Y-U-M-M-Y” plates came back reported stolen, the cops took no chances and called for backup. Luckily, it was all a misunderstanding, and no shots were fired. The officer who pulled the vehicle over is now a bit of a laughingstock on the force. Says a colleague: “He’s just like, ‘I don’t believe this is happening.’ ”
