Brian Wilson drives cop car

The Brian Wilson stories just keep on coming.

The San Jose Mercury News reported on Brian Wilson's new ride -- and no, contrary to what he said on the George Lopez show, it is not a schooner.

Instead, it's a police cruiser.

Yup, a police cruiser that is fully outfitted -- loudspeaker too. And Wilson enjoys the attention as he leans on the horn when pulling into the parking lot to announce his arrival.

For those wondering: yes, it is legal to drive a police cruiser if you are a civilian. However, most cruisers are stripped of the markings on the car along with lights and siren. There's no picture of the cruiser just yet, so it's unclear if "fully equipped" means lights and siren included.

Brian Wilson drives cop car

This isn't because they are going to try and charge Wilson with anything.  It is because if you have ever seen Wilson outside of baseball he is a crazy man in the best way possible. The guy is fresh air.

Check his appearance on Jim Rome.  Rome couldn't get him off fast enough when he pulled out "Machine."

Tooooooo funny!

Brian Wilson drives cop car

Brian Wilson is one of, if not the best up and coming closer in baseball. But why is this news? These sports sites are looking more like the National Enquirer all the time.
