Off-duty trooper dressed as ‘Star Wars’ Stormtrooper stops suspected drunk, wrong-way driver

National

(NBC) – An off-duty highway patrol trooper in Nevada stopped a wrong-way driver early Saturday morning while dressed as none other than a “Star Wars” Stormtrooper.

Video from the incident shows trooper Britta Foesch, who was on her way home from a Halloween party, when she encountered a Toyota Prius with tire damage attempting to enter the highway going the wrong way on I-15 just after 1 a.m.

Trooper Foesch managed to stop the vehicle and phoned on-duty NHP troopers who arrived shortly after.

The driver, 27-year-old Matthew Clendaniel was arrested on suspicion of DUI, driving without a valid driver’s license and two traffic violations.
