The suspect was pulled over before 8 p.m. on southbound U.S. Highway 101 just north of Sir Francis Drake Boulevard when an officer noticed the vehicle with a partially obstructed license plate, according to the CHP.

CHP officials said the suspect's receipt for a pound of teriyaki chicken wings was from earlier in the day Tuesday, and covered the first two digits of his license plates. The CHP said officers in the area sometimes encounter motorists with obstructed plates who are trying to avoid tolls.
