When Officer Jonathan Abrams pulled over a Long Island man for speeding in the HOV lane Friday morning, he ran into a slight problem: He asked both men in the car for ID, but one of them, being several pieces of wood stuck together, had none.

"I noticed that the front seat passenger was not a person," Abrams (rudely) said of driver James Campbell's wooden companion. "It was constructed as if it was popsicle sticks, large popsicle sticks."

Campbell was then cited for speeding and occupancy violation, but he says he isn't about to abandon his boarded bud. On Friday evening, Campbell confirmed to WNBC that his pal is riding up front again.

"He's got a sister down in the basement," Campbell weirdly added, "and on special occasions I bring her out and she wears a tutu."
