Logan Shaulis, of Somerset, PA wanted to be a state trooper so bad he grabbed a gun, some road flares, a portable scanner and some handcuffs before setting-up shop on Route 601 blocking traffic in what polices call a fake DUI Checkpoint.

Troopers say 19-year-old Shaulis parked his vehicle diagonally across the road at 4am and began stopping vehicles. A motorist who stopped says Shaulis claimed he was a trooper and demanded to see a driver’s license, registration and insurance papers.

The irony in the whole ordeal, police suspect Logan Shaulis was actually drunk himself during the event.

He faces charges including drunken driving, impersonating a public servant and unlawful restraint. He remained jailed Tuesday. Online court records don’t list an attorney for him. A preliminary hearing is set for June 9.
