California Highway Patrol officers nabbed a lone driver in a Contra Costa County carpool lane Thursday. Sitting in the passenger seat was a Chucky doll, the antagonist of the cult horror film series “Child’s Play.”

Either the driver was incredibly desperate or was hoping to thoroughly spook the CHP so as not to get issued a ticket.

That plan failed on all accounts, according to a tweet by the agency.

“We know JON GRUDEN is back, and we love it too,” the statement said, “but this will definitely not work as your carpool passenger! But hilarious! A for effort,… and here’s your carpool ticket.”
