Pennsylvania man ran fake DUI checkpoint while drunk
SOMERSET, Pa. —
Okay, get this… a Pennsylvania man — who was drunk — set up a drunk-driving checkpoint complete with road flares and pretended he was a State patrolman named Officer Superman.
State troopers say Logan Shaulis, 19, diagonally parked his Mazda Miata across state Route 601 and set up road flares about 4 a.m. on Saturday.
A female driver who stopped at the “checkpoint” said Shaulis demanded to see a driver’s license, registration and insurance papers.
“I told him I was sober,” the driver said. “And asked why he wasn’t in uniform. He told me he was undercover. Yeah, my foot, he was undercover.”
When real police arrived, Shaulis handed the driver a BB pistol and said, “I can’t get caught with this. Take it and give me your phone number and I’ll text you later to get the gun back.”
Shaulis faces charges of drunk driving, impersonating a public servant and unlawful restraint.
A preliminary hearing is set for June 9.
