FULSHEAR, Texas – A traffic stop in Fulshear didn't go as the officer expected.

Fulshear police posted a video with the caption "We lost a police car" on the department's Facebook page of an officer making a fake traffic stop on Dec. 13.

Dashcam video shows the officer walking up to the vehicle.

"How are we doing tonight?" the officer asks. The driver responds in a very familiar tone.

"Sir, have you been drinking tonight?" The officer asks the driver to step out of the vehicle. It's Chewbacca!

Eventually, other characters from the movie pop out of the vehicle, including Darth Vader.

"The force is strong with this one," said the man dressed as Darth Vader.

This "Star Wars" spoof is making the rounds on the Internet as the new movie, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" made its premiere in Los Angeles Monday.
