Supercross Star James Stewart Gets Popped Trying to Pull Over a Police Officer

Athletes have become notorious for catching DUI charges, but we've never heard about one getting into trouble for what James Stewart did when he got behind the wheel Monday morning. For some strange reason, the 2007 and 2009 Supercross champion was driving his truck on a Florida highway when he decided to whip out a pair of red and blue police lights to try and pull another vehicle over. Only problem: That car contained two off-duty Florida troopers who weren't buying that Stewart was a real undercover police officer. Stewart sped off once the troopers identified themselves and he realized his mistake, but he was later bagged at the Orlando airport by a couple of real cops and charged with impersonating an officer. Oops? [via SB Nation]
