(CBS) HUNTINGTON BEACH - Winnie the Pooh gets a traffic ticket.
Perhaps we should add that adventure to author A.A. Milne's collection about the lovable bear after a report by CBS Los Angeles that a man in a "Pooh" body suit got stopped by police in Huntington Beach, Calif., and cited for having expired tags.
The "bear" was stopped Sunday by an Officer Baker, according to the police department's Facebook page.
The post about the encounter noted that after getting a fix-it ticket, Pooh left "with his honey pot."
As of 6 p.m. Monday, the post had more than 760 likes - although some Huntington Beach residents took umbrage at "Poor Pooh" being stopped.
To the resident who posted, "Pooh is a friend of mine. He didn't deserve a ticket," the police shot back, "When you see someone putting on his Big Boots, you can be pretty sure that an Adventure is going to happen," A.A. Milne, author "Winnie-The-Pooh."
