GUILDFORD, England — A man with a NYPD squad car has been arrested by British police after he drove it in an English town.
The 33-year-old driver, Mark Knight, was arrested as he parked his car — complete with the iconic police livery — in the traditional market town of Guildford, close to London, while he went to buy McDonald's.
Drawn to the strange looking car — at least in the UK — officers opened the trunk of the police car and discovered replica firearms and police equipment.
