Yabba Dabba Doo! Florida man gets pulled over driving 'footmobile' dressed as Fred Flintstone

WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. - No, it wasn't Bedrock. It was Florida, of course.

Earlier this month, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office cited a man, Don Swartz, dressed head to toe as the cartoon character Fred Flintstone. 

On top of that, Swartz was driving a small car that was meticulously tricked out to look like Fred's legendary footmobile.  

The sheriff's office said in a lighthearted Facebook post that Swartz was pulled over for speeding in the Meadow "Bedrock" Pointe Subdivision in Wesley Chapel.

Swartz was cited and issued a notice to appear and released. 

The deputy then seized the vehicle, which the sheriff's office said "is now part of the PSO fleet. This is what intelligence-led policing looked like in the Stone Age."

Let's hope 'Fred" wasn't late to work at the local gravel company because of his run-in with law enforcement!
