Cops hold senior citizen at gun point for driving classic car with restored plates


A pair of senior citizens were humiliated and harassed by a group of gun toting cops who didn't understand the concept of restored plates. After driving past a Highway Patrol car in Nevada, the classic car enthusiasts were stopped when the trooper couldn't find their tag in his computer. Restored tags aren't uncommon on classic cars, and are completely legal in the Bruins' home state of Washington. The plate matched the registration paperwork which the Bruins gave to the troopers. The only problem? The restored plates are listed under "Equipment" while the actual plate number is listed with a "+" sign. The trooper failed to include this symbol in his search, found nothing, and it only got worse from there.
