Authorities in Ocean County, New Jersey, are speaking out against a cell phone case that’s apparently designed to look like a gun. Surprisingly, it looks somewhat realistic, especially when hanging out of the back pocket of your jeans or sticking out of a purse. Although the phone case isn’t illegal, for exorbitantly obvious reasons, it’s still a very bad idea.
The Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office says:
Please folks – this cell phone case is not a cool product or a good idea. A police officers job is hard enough, without having to make a split second decision in the dark of night when someone decides without thinking to pull this out while stopped for a motor vehicle violation. What do you think?
