    Greg Ulrich, a Washington State Patrol trooper, pulled over a driver in the carpool lane who had a cutout of Donald Trump in the passenger's seat in Auburn, Washington.

    A Washington state trooper ticketed a driver trying to get through the carpool lane with a giant cutout of Donald Trump's head Tuesday morning.

    "You see a lot of things in your career, including mannequins, but this was something else," said Trooper Rick Johnson, a spokesman for the Washington State Patrol.

    He said the trooper stopped the car on State Route 167 near Auburn, told the driver, "This is just awesome" — and handed him a $136 citation for violating the HOV lane.

    "He let him keep his Donald Trump cutout," Johnson said.
