A Grand Theft Auto modder’s authentic depictions of real police vehicles have angered law enforcement officials in the Washington, D.C. area.
NBC reports that GTA videos of police vehicles from Prince William County, Montgomery County, and Fairfax County are available on YouTube:
Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery. But don’t tell that to some local police jurisdictions that are upset over YouTube videos depicting their cruisers in a video game…
One video even shows a digital officer getting out of a Fairfax County Police cruiser to gun down citizens on the street.
The Fairfax County Police Department finds the videos in very poor taste," said spokesperson Don Gotthardt. "One of the reasons we find it in poor taste is because of the way the officers are depicted."
