Driver of ‘Booty Patrol’ truck that resembled Border Patrol cited in Florida

A Florida man was cited this week after driving a truck painted similar to the look of Border Patrol vehicles but that read “Booty Patrol” on the back, authorities said. The driver was pulled over Sunday and cited for a law that deals with prohibited vehicle lights that resemble law enforcement or other officials, the DeSoto County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday.

On Monday, the sheriff’s office posted photos of the truck on social media in an effort to raise awareness about people impersonating authorities. Photos of the white truck showed it had “Booty Patrol” on the back and side panels with a diagonal green stripe down the side of the cab. The truck had red and blue lights and had been seen in several counties, the sheriff’s office said. The driver of the truck was not identified in a statement from the sheriff’s office posted to social media.
