LAS VEGAS - A trooper with the Nevada Highway Patrol, who had just left a costume party late Friday night, caught a suspected drunk driver while still dressed as a stormtrooper from Star Wars.

The off-duty trooper's personal dash camera caught the encounter on video Saturday night. Officials say Trooper Britta Foesch caught the driver trying to get onto an interstate while driving in the wrong direction.

Foesch called for help over the phone and got on-duty troopers to respond. The Nevada Highway Patrol says the driver was taken into custody and booked on suspicion of DUI.
