General Lee ‘caught’

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

An im­age depict­ing a ‘General Lee’ replica being ‘pulled over’ by the po­lice has found in­ter­net fame – re­ceiv­ing thou­sands of re-tweets and likes on Twit­ter and Face­book and other so­cial me­dia sites.

The Dodge Charger had ac­tu­ally bro­ken down and was being as­sisted by of­fi­cers from the Bed­ford­shire, Cam­bridgeshire and Hert­ford­shire road polic­ing unit. The Dukes of Haz­zard-style car was en route home after at­tend­ing the Rods ‘n’ Sods Revs & Rhythms clas­sic car show in Bed­ford­shire on 22 July.

An of­fi­cer says: ‘ This clas­sic was sim­ply hav­ing a bad day and had bro­ken down. While wait­ing for break­down as­sis­tance the owner re­quested the photo op­por­tu­nity for his own records – un­der­stand­ably – and we were happy to oblige. The car was fully road le­gal and no of­fences had been com­mit­ted.’

One too many Boss Hogg eva­sion jumps?
