Video of Roma driving police car riles officers

Police probe finds used movie set squad car

(ANSA) - Rome, February 19 - A group of Roma (gypsies) who made a video of themselves apparently sitting at the wheel of a police car they had stolen used a movie-set squad car vehicle to poke fun at the forces of law and order, police said Thursday.
    The video showing the Roma mimicking police rushing out of the car attracted a wide readership on social networks but a probe by police headquarters in Rome found that a car belonging to a movie prop agency had been used for the prank.
    The company has been identified and police are starting legal proceedings to protect the image of the police and obtain damages, a police statement said.
