    “Hand over your license, registration, and uhhh…your wallet.” When was the last time you saw the police driving a Mustang convertible outside of a Hollywood movie?

    • Too Easy

      Are you saying that there are no plain close or undercover cops in Arlington?

        There are a number of plain ‘clothes’ officers in Arlington but a Mustang convertible is a little ostentatious. Most county unmarked cars are Ford Crown Victorias but their motorpool also includes Dodge Chargers, Ford Explorers, and I’ve seen SWAT utilize a Honda minivan. A convertible strikes me as a little ‘Hollywood’ if you will.
