Car Full of Star Wars Characters Pulled Over By Police

(INSIDE EDITION) A Texas police officer pulled over an SUV and when he asked the driver to come out of the vehicle, a man dressed as Chewbacca from Star Wars emerged.

The intergalactic Wookiee's companion, Han Solo, got out of the passenger side, while people dressed as villains Darth Vader and Darth Maul surprised the officer when they exited the SUV.

The group claimed they were going to the premiere of the latest installment to the franchise, The Force Awakens.

In what was later revealed to be a prank that the police department was in on, the incident was caught on dashcam by the Fulshear Police Department and they posted it on Facebook.
