Oscar Meyer Wienermobile pulled over in Tucson

 The Oscar Meyer Wienermobile was pulled over about 10:30 a.m. on June 27, 2007 in Tucson.   The DPS pulled over the Wienermobile on I10 near the south 6th Avenue exit.  A DPS officer ran a computer check on the Wienermobile’s license plate “Yummy.”  The computer check came back that the “Yummy” license plate was stolen. 
The mistake was made because Wisconsin police had made a wrong entry on a computer log.  A bad computer entry showed the Wienermobile as having a stolen license plate.  The computer entry was supposed to make a note that the license plate “Yummy” was only to be on the Wienermobile.  If the license plate “Yummy” showed up another vehicle it was stolen.
