Texas police issue warning to driver with washing machine on hood of SUV

(Abilene Police Department)

A man in Texas strapped a washing machine to the hood of his SUV and drove with it that way.

Someone spotted the SUV at the Stripes convenience store across from Dyess Air Force Base and called the Abilene Police Department.

Police told KTXS that they tracked the driver down at his home in the 6100 block of South 7th. Street and let him off with a warning instead of giving him a ticket.

If they would've issued the driver a ticket, police said it would have been issued for "obstruction of operator's view or driving mechanism."

The man told police he was "going to sell it."
