The trooper who pulled Stewart over posted a picture of the two on Twitter, but the post was taken down.

The trooper could be disciplined for using social media during a traffic stop.

Stewart didn’t have to worry about lanes during his NASCAR career, so it was nice of the trooper to give him a pass.
