Have you seen the pictures circling around on social media? This image has gone viral all across Louisiana, but what's the story behind it? Will the Shreveport Police Department actually start rolling out a line of Mercedes Benz patrol units?

The source for this story is the online "Reporter News" page. In the post, it says:
