Canadian man tricks cops with car made of snow
A Canadian man's prank on cops was pure as the driven snow.
Simon Laprise says he tricked officers when he created a life-sized version of a Delorean DMC-12, made famous in "Back to the Future" from the fluffy white stuff that outside his home in Montreal this week.
The machinist and designer posted on Facebook about his personal snowmobile, and later shared a picture of a confused policeman who stopped and stood next to it.

"You made our evening," the officer wrote, in French, on a ticket posted by Laprise.
The creator said that it took him four hours to create the fake Delorean, originally meant to prank snow removal teams.
Laprise joked that the vehicle had been "towed to the snow depot" but added that it was destroyed when the roads were cleared.
