ALPHARETTA, Ga. — Police say a motorcycle officer who stopped a driver for speeding on a suburban highway north of Atlanta had an “extraterrestrial encounter” — sort of.
George Gordon, a spokesman for police in Alpharetta, says that when the officer pulled the man over Sunday, a life-size doll of a big-eyed, large-skulled alien was riding in the front passenger seat.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution first reported the encounter, saying the driver was clocked at 84 mph. Not quite warp speed, and Gordon later told the Associated Press: “He did not mention as to ‘why’ he had an out-of-this-world passenger.”
The driver got off with a verbal warning — and some laughs from the officer — who took photographs of the safety-belted alien, which police later posted on social media.
