Trooper nabs HOV violator with life-size mannequin in passenger seat

TACOMA, Wash. - A Washington State Patrol trooper caught a creative driver Friday trying to pass off a mannequin as a passenger.

The violator was driving 81-miles-per-hour in the HOV lane, Washington State Patrol Trooper Bartolac said.

The trooper snapped a photo of the mannequin and sent it to Bartolac, who posted it to his official Twitter account Friday morning.

The driver was cited for speed and HOV violation, Bartolac said.

Bartolac said the mannequin was one of the most life-like mannequins he has ever seen.
