It’s safe to say that at least one driver in Atlanta had good reason for trying to achieve warp speed while buzzing through the northern reaches of the city: He was not alone.
His copilot was an alien.
No, not the type that should be concerned with a certain recent Supreme Court ruling or edicts from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., but a real-life extraterrestrial … sort of.
According to officials for the police department in Alpharetta, Georgia, a northern suburb of Atlanta, one of their motorcycle officers pulled over a driver doing 84 mph and upon coming to the window apparently spotted the man’s unique passenger.

George Gordon, a spokesman for police in Alpharetta, says the driver “did not mention as to ‘why’ he had an out of this world passenger.”
The driver received a verbal warning from the officer, who managed to squeeze off a few pics of the driver’s otherworldly passenger, which were later posted on social media. However, the officer may not have gotten an answer as to why the alien was riding shotgun, any recent visitor to XX can hazard a guess as to why a life-size doll was crammed into the front seat.

Atlanta has HOV lanes. And with the way traffic is in that city, it is a certainty that many drivers have contemplated sticking a mannequin or some other adult-sized doll in the passenger seat hoping to not get caught or to at least find a member of the Georgia State Patrol with a healthy sense of humor walking up to the car.
