CHICOPEE, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts state trooper noticed something a little odd about the license plate she spotted on a car on Interstate 391 in Chicopee.

Upon closer inspection, there was a lot odd about it.

The "license plate" on the car pulled over at about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday was actually just a piece of cardboard. In a poor attempt to replicate a real Massachusetts license plate, the letters and numbers were crudely drawn with a red marker.

The word "Massachusetts" and the phrase "The Spirit of America" were written in the appropriate places in blue pen.

The 20-year-old woman driving the vehicle was charged with driving with a suspended license and attaching false plates.
