VINCENNES, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Body camera and dash camera footage from a recent traffic stop involving a man driving a Power Wheels Jeep in Vincennes, Indiana, was released Friday.

The footage was obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request filed by News 2’s sister station, WTWO.

As seen in the video, an Indiana State Police trooper was patrolling the area of Second Street in Vincennes when he pulled up behind 51-year-old John McKee driving the child’s toy.

After initiating the traffic stop, the trooper asked where McKee is headed, and McKee informed him he was heading home from the Huck’s gas station with a can of gas, as he gestured to the back of the plastic Jeep.

“Where’s your gas can at?” the officer asked.

“Oh man, I left it back there!” McKee responded.

After checking with dispatch regarding the situation, the trooper then administered field sobriety tests, which McKee failed.

The trooper then informed McKee he needed to go to the hospital for a blood test and began searching the vehicle. The trooper found six batteries designed for or compatible with the Power Wheels Vehicle strewn about the passenger seat and back compartment of the “Jeep.”
