Sgt. Stephen Wheeles posted a photo of a car he pulled over for violating the "slowpoke" law that went into effect recently in Indiana.
The law states that drivers in the fast lane have to move over if the car behind them is going faster, otherwise they could get a $500 fine.
"I stopped this vehicle today for a left lane violation on I-65," Wheeles wrote on Twitter. "The driver had approximately 20 cars slowed behind her because she would not move back to the right lane.
Again...if there are vehicles behind you, you must move to the right lane to allow them to pass."
Thousands of Twitter users are asking Wheeles to transfer to their state. He's also received support from famous athletes.
Hall of Fame NFL quarterback Troy Aikman tweeted: "Finally!"
Indy Car Driver Graham Rahal tweeted: "This guy is my hero."
