A sheriff’s deputy asked to see some identification during a traffic stop outside Minneapolis, Minnesota, on Friday, and he wasn’t expecting the driver to show him a Monopoly Chance card instead.
“[On Friday, March 24,] a deputy did a traffic stop, and the driver handed him this card, along with his driver’s license,” the Chisago County Sheriff’s Office wrote in a Facebook post, including a picture of the pink Monopoly “Get Out of Jail Free” card.
Captain Andrew Mahowald, of the Chisago County Sheriff’s Office, told Nexstar the driver had been stopped after one of the department’s deputies spotted him for speeding through Franconia Township just before he whipped out the card.
The deputy and the rest of the department did have a good laugh about humorous gesture later that day.
“Unfortunately the state of Minnesota does not recognize this as a valid document,” the Facebook post continued. “Points for the effort and humor though!”
The deputy was clearly put in a good mood after seeing the Monopoly card because he only issued the driver a verbal warning.
It’s nice to see fun news articles!
