Pickup driver pulled over in Wisconsin was driving from a camping chair

Perfectly normal behavior.

A driver in Wisconsin was caught by police with an unusual setup inside their pickup truck.

The bizarre find by the Wisconsin State Patrol saw troopers stop a driver in the North Central Region of the state for an "equipment violation."

"On his approach, the trooper noticed the vehicle was not equipped with seats and the driver was seated in a camping chair," the State Patrol said.

The tweet also used the hashtag #YouDontSeeThatEveryday, but this is Wisconsin so we can't confirm if that's 100% accurate.

In any case, Wisconsin law says all vehicles manufactured after 1971 are required to have safety belts installed as per the vehicle's original specifications.

The law also requires head rests in vehicles manufactured after 1974, and that a vehicle's seating and seating mechanisms be in full working order, so this driver was 0-for-3.
