Police officers are human and they have a sense of humor, but not about messing with their vehicle or other official police equipment. That's what Luke Palumbo found out Sunday in downtown Schenectady according to The Daily Gazette.

Mr. Palumbo thought it would be a hilarious prank to jump in an idling police car and have some fun. No, he didn't peel-out and drive all over upstate running from the law. He got in the police car and moved it back and forth in a parking spot. Why that's funny, I don't know.

He quickly found out it wasn't funny when he was placed under arrest for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property because the officer's shotgun was inside the car at the time, according to The Daily Gazette.

I'm sure he'll have plenty of time to coming up with his next hilarious prank while he spends some time behind bars.
