I would be really pissed if my 60K+ sports car got siezed and turned into a DARE car.

    PLAINFIELD -- Patrol Officer Mario Marzetta was about finished running radar on Essington Road on a March afternoon when the catch of the day flew by.

    He heard it before he saw it -- the engine of a 2000 Dodge Viper revving high before the car blew by him at 127 mph in a 35 mph zone.

    The driver was eventually charged with felony fleeing and eluding police, while his car became the property of the Plainfield Police Department.

    Now the shiny black Viper with a cognac leather interior has a fresh-paint detail and is outfitted with lights, ready to serve as the department's new D.A.R.E. car.

    The car's custom paint job was done by Jeff Brown of Todd's Body Shop and features an airbrushed American flag design on the hood. Others who donated services to customize the vehicle include Chicago Communication, Ray O'Herron, Plainfield Signs and Code 3.

    The D.A.R.E. car, which will be taken to community events, block parties, parades and schools, will make its public debut Tuesday at Cruise Night in downtown Plainfield. Cruise Night is held every Tuesday night on Lockport Street through Aug. 28.

    Attempted getaway
    The arrest was made on an afternoon in March 2006. Marzetta chased the joy rider north from 135th to 127th Street, where the Viper swerved left around two cars at the intersection and turned right.
    The Viper weaved in and out of an industrial park before the driver hit Weber Road traffic and tried to hide in a nearby parking lot.

    As the driver, a Naperville resident, was being fingerprinted -- unaware he was losing his luxury ride -- he asked Marzetta if the car could be stored indoors to shelter it from the elements. The vehicle has 17,000 miles on it and is in like-new condition.

    When Marzetta dropped the man off at the county jail, he "thanked" him for the car.

    Vehicles involved in the commission of a felony can be seized, said Community Service Officer Mark Siegel. The department has a lot full of seized vehicles, most of which aren't worth much and are sold at auction, he said.
    "It's very safe to say that this is the only seized Viper out there that's a D.A.R.E. car," Siegel said. "It's a once-in-a-lifetime car."

    The department's previous D.A.R.E. car was a 1986 Pontiac Firebird seized in 1989. About seven years ago, it was one of six in the nation chosen to be made into Matchbox cars, Siegel said.

    "We held onto that one longer than we should have" because of the Matchbox toy, he said, adding that by the end of its run with the department the car was barely driveable.

    "Nobody wanted to drive it," he said. "Now I've got to beat them off with a stick."

    Marzetta drove the car -- a sleek, 450-horsepower billboard for the police department -- for the first time Thursday.

    As he pulled out of the lot, he paused to rev the engine several times.

    "No!" Siegel yelled after him. "Remember what you're driving!"


    Cliffs: Guido cop see's speeding Viper, guy tries to hide in Warehouse district, cop arrests the guy and then "thanks him" for the new car.

    Just because the dude was speeding and tried to get away they seized his fucking car? Yes he's an idiot, Lock him up. But why do they have the right to take his car? A car that he paid for legally and holds the title to. Fucking faggot ass pigs.

    You should know better than that. And know that I've driven and will drive better cars than you ever will. Now sit the fuck down, and shut the fuck up.

    If i get caught with drugs are they going to let me keep them after the punishment?

    he broke serious laws with his car, so they confiscated it.

    If he were to have pulled over he would have only gotten a fine but he was a douchebag and tried to get away
