A man in Pennsylvania pretended to be a state trooper, but was drunker than the people he was pulling over.

In Somerset, Pennsylvania, a 19-year-old man set up a fake drunk-driving checkpoint and pretended to be a state trooper. The fake cop had set up a standard DUI checkpoint—parking his car diagonally in the middle of the road and setting out road flares.

Somehow, actual state police got wind of a drunk 19-year-old pretending to be a cop at four in the morning. When troopers arrived on the scene, the fake cop had pulled over a motorist. He was demanding to see a driver's license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance when he was confronted by authorities. The driver claims the drunk "cop" handed him a BB gun, claiming "I can't get caught with this."

Even after escaping the pellet gun possession charge, the super-drunk trooper was arrested on the charges of drunken driving, impersonating a public servant and unlawful restraint.
