Street racer Kennedy Ewell arrested while using fake “615 SWIM” license plate
20-year-old street racer Kennedy Ewell was jailed Friday night after police noticed him driving on Bell Road with a fake license plate used by many locals in the car scene. The identical plates, used on dozens of cars, are replicas of actual Tennesse License Plates, with the tag number of “615 SWIM” as seen in the photos below, with ‘DNTCHASEBOYZ’ where the county name would normally be. The idea behind the plates is that if all the street racers are using them during races or street takeovers, they will not be able to be tracked by their actual plate numbers, and to fool the LPRs (license plate readers) which would then have dozens of identical hits — just another fish (car) swimming in the sea (of traffic). Ewell told police he had put the fake license plate on to take photos and forgot to remove it before driving. Ewell was able to produce the correct tag that belonged to the car and told officers he had seen the “615 SWIM” plates on Scoop: Nashville.
