Nick Young had a very confusing encounter with the police

Tuesday March 1st, 2016

On Monday night, Lakers guard Nick Young posted a head-scratching video to Twitter of an encounter that he had with police.

Why was a professional basketball player driving around with no license plates, and is Young aware that’s against the law? It also begs the question—is there a company in Los Angeles renting out cars without plates?

This may be the most confusing video ever. It did, however, give us this priceless reaction from a police officer who realized he was starring in a Swaggy P short film:

Let’s see if Swaggy P explains this.
