The reason it was fake according to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department is because although it was a 1960’s legacy-style yellow-on-black license plate, it had wobbly numbers and letters. Along with that, the plate said “CALIFAS” instead of reading “CALIFORNIA.”
On Monday, Sheriffs said that an officer on a motorcycle noticed the license plate and pulled over the drive in Moorpark City, northwest of Los Angeles.
According to authorities, the man was arrested for being suspected of driving under the influence of drugs or a DUI and being in possession of methamphetamine. On top of that, the man was also an unlicensed driver and had an arrest warrant that was active.
The big-rig truck was then towed away because according to authorities it was not safe to be driven on the road.
