A Texas fan had an unconventional run in with the law on Twitter on Thursday evening.
The NYPD 20th Precinct tweet a photo of a homemade dummy with a Texas hoodie on in the backseat of a car. The tweet said the driver made the dummy so they could drive the in the high occupancy vehicle lane.

One Texas fan didn't take too kindly to the post and responded to the tweet by questioning the legitimacy of the stop. NYPD responded with a .gif showing former Sooner running back Alex Ross scoring a 97 yard touchdown in the 2014 Red River Rivalry and virtually arrested the unfortunate Longhorn fan.
Not a crime, to be clear... rather, a traffic violation. And before you criticize us, remember: Good things happen when you stay in your lane! pic.twitter.com/RLvXhT3KXq— NYPD 20th Precinct (@NYPD20Pct) July 12, 2019
