VERSAILLES, IN (WNCN) – A tweet by a sergeant with the Indiana State Police has gone viral after he said he pulled over a vehicle that was going too slow in the left lane. 

Sgt. Stephen Wheeles with the Versailles district in Southeast Indiana tweeted Saturday about pulling over a driver for going too slow.

He said the “driver had approximately 20 cars slowed behind her because she would not move back to the right lane.”

Twitter users responded to the tweet by begging for him to do the same in places like across the country. 

“Can you transfer to Florida and patrol?” one user responded. 

When user @TheViewfrom111 wrote “We can sure could use you in Tennessee,” Wheeles responded by saying that was just outside his jurisdiction:

“I love Tennessee but unfortunately my enforcement powers stop at the Ohio River…Sorry!!”

The original tweet has more than 46,000 likes and has been retweeted more than 15,000 times.
