SWAT Team Mistakes Tuned Integra Exhaust Bangs For Automatic Rifle Fire

Despite loud bangs and crackles being the reason someone fits a custom exhaust to his car, it seems that there are some downsides to making your ride sound like a battle field.

According to the description of the video, no less than a dozen heavily armed officers showed up with automatic assault rifles to investigate what was going on at this garage. As it turned out, what was actually making all that noise was a ridiculously loud Acura Integra.

The owner of the car, Enrique Mendoza, was just playing around with the launch control function outside of his workshop, unaware that the noise could attract that much attention.

“I used launch control while putting my car away and the cops thought it was someone firing an AK-47 and turned up with guns drawn, they were very good about the situation once they realized it was actually the car.”

While the mood did lighten up once the officers realized what actually had happened, they did arrive on location convinced that somebody had fired an automatic weapon – one officer in particular even calls Mendoza a liar. It’s good that things didn’t escalate beyond that and that the owner of the car was given the opportunity to prove where the noise came from.

    Well the cops were just doing their jobs, I wouldn’t be so hard on them for accusing the driver was lying. A nuke could go off in my country and the cops would probably ignore it.

      I don’t blame them… it sounded like real gun.

    • I wonder where you live now…

      • Shobin Drogan

        Malaysia, i’ve had multiple interesting experiences in the past. Lets just say you’re better off on your own than calling them.
        They either A: Wont show up or B: Will do jack shit.

    • Scherpereel Clement

      You’re right, the only problem is how they do their job, calling the guy a fucking liar and not recognise that it’s not gunshot ! Because in the end, even those bang sound a bit like gunshots, the reving is prety loud to and cops must know to recognise a gunshots from something else.
      Next time kids are playing with firecracker the SWAT is going to show up ?

  • brn

    That wasn’t a SWAT team. Those were patrol officers.

    • Obsequious Lickspittle

      Some belonged to the FAT team!

      • sounds like the right name…

      • Scherpereel Clement

        Fat And Twat team ?


    Can’t blame them. I mean some anti-lag systems do sound like gun fire sometimes.

    • Scherpereel Clement

      Yeah right, but those moron didn’t even know about this type of noise and didn’t let the guy explain at first. And then one of them (the mustached one is mad because they equivocated themselves and look like morons !
      On the other hand those blast sound like gunshot

  • europeon

    I’m no gun expert, but that’s a weird and irregular cadence to be mistaken for an automatic weapon. A cop should know how to make the difference.

    • Scherpereel Clement

      See those cops ? Most of them are overweight and I’m not sure they know a lot of things. Especialy cars OR real automatic weapon, they’re not SWAT.

  • Steve Hatton

    So if you swear at a cop you get arrested but its fine for a cop to call you a fucking liar !

    • Scherpereel Clement

      Right ! Oh BTW it’s not ilegal to curse a cop in most state apparently if it’s justified

  • GobbleUp

    Owner of the car is a complete clown sack. Peeps like you go down.

  • smartacus

    Did you notice the cops didn’t bother asking his citizenship status?

    • Scherpereel Clement

      Yeah because all cops (even stupid one) are not racist !

  • Stephen G

    Isn’t there a noise ordanance?

  • Peter

    Idiot tuners and fat cops. America is great again!

  • Joff

    Thats a bunch of walking road blocks
