Any police officer will tell you that their job can be very unpredictable. 

You never know who or what you may encounter on a daily basis, especially in certain parts of the country. 

But an otherworldly vehicle in Missouri attracted the attention of law enforcement officers. 

This souped-up UFO forced these police officers to make a double-take 

For many Americans, some of their best memories are when they helped their dads fix up cars in the garage. 

This is often where the best and most important conversations happen.  

One man in Missouri spent some serious time in his garage and converted an old vehicle into a makeshift UFO. 

Police officers in Crawford County, Missouri, could not believe their eyes after seeing this UFO puttering along the highway. 

According to the driver, they were heading to an event all the way in Roswell, New Mexico.

The UFO vehicle, which had Indiana plates, failed to stay in its own lane and prompted a traffic stop. 

Rather than create a big deal about it, officers asked the driver to drive with extra caution as he headed down to New Mexico. 

In a now-viral statement, a Crawford County police officer posted a picture of the UFO with the caption, “These friendly humanoids, who have come in peace.” 

Already, this post has gained 12,000 reactions on Facebook alone. 

Public Information Officer and Undersheriff Major Adam Carnal spoke out about the encounter in an email with Fox News Digital.

Given the “wind/traffic on the interstate plus the size and aerodynamics of his vehicle, he understood that the potential for lane violations existed,” according to Carnal. 

Carnal then added that “given the good nature of the driver and the interesting nature of the vehicle, we opted to provide a fun social media post for our community. It was a great interaction and we wished him safe travels to his destination.”

Crawford County’s viral Facebook post reveals the effort many police departments go to in order to gain the support of the public 

As Adam Carnal detailed in his email to Fox News Digital, the last thing officers wanted to do with the bizarre UFO stop was to make a negative headline. 

The UFO car, which had valid licenses from Indiana, did not put anybody in danger even if it may have technically violated some Missouri laws. 

Many police departments across the nation have worked tirelessly to convince Americans that they are not just out there to get them. 

Groups like Black Lives Matter have inflicted incredible harm on the public reputation of police departments everywhere, which makes the jobs of cops that much harder.
