From the town of Wesley Chapel ...wait that’s not how the “Flintstones” theme song goes, but nevertheless, Fred Flintstone found himself in trouble with the law recently.

A deputy pretended to pull over Don Swartz, aka Fred Flintstone, for speeding through Bedrock, er, Meadow Pointe Subdivision of Wesley Chapel, in a Smart car, disguised as Fred's footmobile, according to WTVT.  That's a "yabba dabba don't."

Officials said that he became "unruly" and needed to be detained before being given a notice to appear in court and released, WTVT reported.

Deputies then said they seized the footmobile and added it to the PSO fleet.

Photos of the "incident" were posted to the sheriff department's Facebook page.
