FULTON, COUNTY, Ga. - Alpharetta police see a lot things on the road, but this surely ranks as one of their most unusual finds.
Apparently, someone put a fake stuffed alien in their passenger seat while they were driving around Alpharetta.
The driver was stopped by a motorcycle officer for speeding on GA 400.
"(He) was issued a verbal warning. He did not mention as to why he had an out of this world passenger," officer George Gordon told Channel 2 Action News.
The police department jokingly tweeted about the incident, asking "#doesthisqualifyforHOV."
The use of HOV lanes began in Atlanta in December 1994.
Only vehicles with two or more living and not pre-infant persons in the vehicle, emergency transport, motorcycles, buses or alternative fuel vehicles, properly licensed with an AF license , can ride in the HOV lane.
There are no HOV lanes in Alpharetta, but there are throughout many other parts of the city.
