A 19-year-old dumbass was arrested last week for pretending to be a Pennsylvania state trooper and setting up a drunk-driving checkpoint- complete with road flares, a pair of handcuffs, pistol, and portable police scanner… while drunk.
You gotta give him props for being a highly functional drunk, though.
Troopers say the suspect, Logan Shaulis, parked his vehicle diagonally across state Route 601 and set up road flares around 4 a.m.
A motorist who stopped said Shaulis claimed he was a trooper and that he demanded to see a driver’s license, registration and insurance papers.
The motorist said Shaulis identified himself as Steve Rogers, a member of the state police drug and alcohol division.
When real, sober troopers arrived, Shaulis tried to hand a BB pistol to the car’s passenger and said, “I can’t get caught with this.”
Good thinkin’, kid.
He was later charged with carrying a firearm without a license, driving under the influence of alcohol, unlawful restraint, possessing an instrument of crime, official oppression, criminal coercion, reckless endangerment, impersonating a public servant, harassment, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.
