June 27 (UPI) -- A routine traffic stop in Georgia turned bizarre when police spotted an extraterrestrial passenger in a speeding vehicle.

Alpharetta Department of Public Safety on Sunday shared photos of the life-size stuffed alien officers found strapped into the passenger's side of the vehicle after stopping the driver for speeding on Sunday.


"Umm, the things you see during everyday patrol," police wrote in the post.

Officer George Gordon told WSBTV the driver was stopped by a motorcycle officer for speeding when they noticed the otherworldly passenger.

"[He] was issued a verbal warning," Gordon said of the driver. "He did not mention as to why he had an out of this world passenger."

Police joked that the driver may have brought along the alien so he would be able to drive in the High Occupancy Vehicle lane.
