AUBURN, Wash., Sept. 28 (UPI) -- The Washington State Patrol said a trooper pulled over an alleged carpool violator who had affixed a cardboard photo of Donald Trump to the passenger seat.
Trooper Rick Johnson, public information officer for the Washington State Patrol in King County, said in a Twitter post Trooper Greg Ulrich pulled a vehicle over Tuesday morning on State Route 167 in Auburn when he noticed it was driving in the high-occupancy vehicle lane with the Republican presidential candidate as its passenger.
The trooper discovered the passenger was nothing more than a cardboard cutout of Trumps' head affixed to the seat.
"WSP Motorcycle Trooper Greg Ulrich stopped a vehicle this morning NB 167 in Auburn for violating the HOV lane. Do you know why?" Johnson tweeted with the picture of the Trump head.
There was no word on whether the driver received a citation, but online commenters projected the fine was likely going to be "yuge."
