The return of Jon Gruden to the Oakland Raiders means the return of the infamous "Chucky" dolls. Gruden earned the nickname "Chucky" for his likeness to the evil children's doll from the horror film Child's Play. While Raider Nation is excited for Gruden's return, California Highway Patrol apparently needs to remind drivers that the doll does not qualify as a carpool buddy. One driver placed the doll shotgun in order to access the carpool lane, but they couldn't get passed CHP. 

At least they had a sense of humor about the incident. The officer still issued a ticket.
