Dec. 20 (UPI) -- Police in California said a driver tried to avoid toll enforcement by covering part of their license plate with a sticker from a package of chicken wings.

The California Highway Patrol said in a Facebook post that a sergeant pulled over a white Ford Mustang about 8 p.m. Tuesday for having a partially covered license plate.


Police said the driver had apparently tried to avoid paying the toll on the Richmond/San Rafael Bridge by using the sticker receipt from a package of Safeway teriyaki chicken wings.

"Well, sure enough the driver had used his receipt from a pound of teriyaki chicken wings he had bought at Safeway earlier in the day, ripped it in half and used it to cover two digits of both the front and rear plate," the post said.

The driver was cited for having an obstructed license plate and driving on a suspended license. The car was impounded.
