A police officer in Georgia found a stun gun disguised as a package of cigarettes during a traffic stop.
During a traffic stop, Kennesaw Police pulled over a driver.
While the driver was outside of his vehicle, he asked the officers who pulled him over that if he can get a cigarette from his car to smoke.
“While the officer was speaking to the driver outside of the car, the driver repeatedly asked to have a cigarette, which was located inside the vehicle. The answer was ‘no,’” police wrote on Twitter.
During the search, police officers found a box of cigarettes, which they realized soon that box of cigarettes was actually a weapon.
The police officer took video of the cigarette pack, which at first look looked like a normal cigarette package, but when the officer pressed a button on the side of the package, it discharged and police determined that it was a stun gun.
“You would be surprised at the type of weapons that have been made to look like normal items,” police wrote.
“So, forgive us when we seem to act ‘too rigid’ and ‘mean’ when we say no to your request to ‘smoke’ or ‘make a phone call’ with your phone, etc.
“We’re just trying to make it home at the end of our shifts like everyone else out here,” they added on Facebook.
The department has not released further details, including the identity of the driver or if any charges were filed.
