(Scroll down for video) A man was detained by police after being spotted driving with a baby zombie sitting in the front seat of his car, police in Washington said.

The Washington State Police said that a trooper pulled over the driver, who was not identified, after being seen driving in the HOV (High Occupancy Vehicle) lane with the baby zombie.

On Tuesday, Trooper Guy Gill said that an officer stopped the driver on Interstate 5 near Tacoma. The driver was attempting to use the zombie baby in order to be eligible to use the HOV lane.

HOV lanes can be used by vehicles carrying two or more people. The man received a fine of $136. Police said that the driver did not receive a fine for not securing the baby in a car seat.

“A trooper stopped an HOV lane violator this morning near Tacoma. At least he's in the Halloween spirit,” police wrote on Twitter.

“The driver got a $136 ticket for the HOV lane violation. We gave him a break for not having a car seat,” Trooper Guy Gill also wrote.
