Man Fools Cops With Car Made Of Snow, Gets Fake Parking Ticket

The sculpture looked so real it caught the attention of a police officer, who stopped to inspect the fake vehicle because it was parked in a snow removal zone.

The 33-year-old machinist and artist thought he could pull a fast one on the cops, and he was right.

Simon Laprise, a 33-year-old machinist and artist based out of Montreal, built a life-size model of a DeLorean DMC-12-the same auto featured in the Back to the Future movies-using snow outside his home Monday.

Laprise modeled the fake auto after the Delorean DMC-12 from "Back to the Future".

Once he completed his duplicate, Laprise took his spot out of view and waited for the police.

The walkway is located above the main lobby of the building and near where visitors are screened and checked before entering. Dramatic video shows the moment a mezzanine floor collapsed at the Indonesia Stock Exchange , injuring more than 70 people.

Laprise (above) said that he never meant to trick officers with his auto - just snow removal workers.

Laprise said it took him four hours to create the vehicle.

Laprise shared pictures of the snow vehicle on his Laprise Simon Designs Facebook page. The ticket wasn't a ticket after all.

The 33-year-old machinist's prank was reportedly plowed clean by Montreal sanitation workers the next day but not before it gave police a amusing story to tell this winter.
