Illinois State Trooper Takes Seized Charger SRT8 Home

The Illinois State Police nabbed a Dodge Charger SRT8 from a DUI stop and gave it to one of their own for personal and business use. The kicker? It wasn't the first time.

According to the Associated Press, the Illinois State Police have seized over two dozen Audis, Cadillacs and other vehicles and turned them over to the police. Even better, taxpayers in Illinois are footing the gas bill for the behemoth. Thankfully, no one ever tried to seize one of our press cars from us when we lived in Chicago.

But, if there's one thing this goes to show you it's that Illinois is readying itself to replace Florida as the state in the Union you're able to have the most fun in on your way to a corruption and abuse of power indictment. [The Newspaper via TTAC]
