‘Artist’ Tries Drawing Legal Tabs on License Plate! Fails Miserably
Monday afternoon, Kennewick police on patrol noticed something that just didn't look right.
They're trained to quickly assess just about every part of a vehicle, and in this case, the suspect's lack of artistic ability did him in.
Around 12:01pm, officers near Vista Way in Kennewick saw THIS on the license plate of a truck headed towards Clearwater. The driver, Mark Owens, was pulled over. Turns out he'd used a marker to try and 'draw' a legal registration tab on the plate! He even used black and white markers to try and match the appropriate color for that month.
Owens was nailed for driving on a Suspended License, and faces several others for the license plate fail. Yes, the truck was not legally licensed to be on the road, as the tabs had expired nearly a year ago in 2017.
Guess those art classes didn't pay off after all...
