FOX 5 posted a picture of the license plate on social media with a caption “Too soon!”

Here are some comments:

“Considering it takes 3-4 months for personalized plates to come in, the decision must have been made to leave months ago,” Carissa wrote on Facebook.

Chargers need to move their offices now, they betrayed us now it’s time for them to go,” Mike posted.

“CHP has to find that car … And crush it… Immediately,” Emmanuel joked.

Haylee wrote what most San Diegans were thinking “must be the Spanos.”

FOX 5 reached out to the Department of Motor Vehicles to inquire about the owner of the license plate.  DMV officials confirmed it was a valid California plate listed as “confidential” in their system. Undercover law enforcement officers and celebrities are among people with confidential plates.

DMV officials added that drivers receive personalized plates within eight to 12 weeks of placing an order.

“I ordered personalized plates in December and still haven’t gotten them. How did this guy pull that off?” San Diego resident Nick Foraker posted on Facebook.
