In what is probably the most bizarre post-race occurance, Fox News is reporting that James "Bubba" Stewart was arrested at the Orlando International Airport yesterday for impersonating an officer of the law.
According to the police report, Stewart and a passenger were driving along SR 417 at 4:50 p.m. on Monday, when he attempted to pull over a vehicle using red and blue flashing lights installed on his Toyota pickup.
To Stewart’s surprise, the vehicle he tried to pull over contained two off-duty state troopers. When the driver identified himself as such, Stewart took off.
He was later arrested at the airport and taken to jail in Orange County. He was released in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Stewart competed in the Toronto Supercross last weekend, where he finished fourth after crashing twice in the final.
