(Scroll down for video) Police in Georgia, posted a video to Facebook, showing a stun gun disguised as a pack of cigarettes.

The Kennesaw Police Department wrote that they pulled over a driver.

During the traffic stop, while he was outside of his vehicle, he asked the officers at the scene 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 a search of the vehicle, police officers found a box of
cigarettes, which they soon realized was actually a weapon.

The officer took video of the cigarette pack, which at first glance looked like just any 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.
