Is It Profiling To Search All Vehicles Featuring A Baked Ben Franklin?

Memphis F Darius Miles was arrested Thursday on marijuana possession charges after being pulled over by Fairview Heights, IL police. Observing the rather garish state of Miles’ 1996 Impala, Deadspin‘s Dashiell Bennett opined, “if you are planning to cruise around town with a bag of weed on you … maybe do it in a car that doesn’t scream, ‘Hey Officer, look at me!’”

Actually, Bennett didn’t know the half of it. Bob Mantz Jr. reveals Miles’ ride depicts Benjamin Franklin smoking pot on the Impala’s hood.

    From what I can see it might be a 1966 Impala, not 1996. My Dad had one of those, without the artwork. It caught fire in 1976. True story.
