Dallas Cowboys running back Christine Michael was driving to work Sunday — the Cowboys were hosting the New England Patriots in Week 5  — when a state trooper turned on the sirens to pull him over. Instead of asking for license and registration, the officer just wanted to take a picture with Michael. Mission accomplished.

Got stopped just to take a picture …DDD
