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

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!
