MARYSVILLE, Wash --  It turned out to be a 'beary' bad decision by a driver in the HOV lane Monday.

Washington State Patrol Trooper Mark Francis tweeted a photo of the driver after they had been pulled over with a giant teddy bear in the passenger seat.

"Woman uses stuffed bear behind dark tint in the HOV lane," tweeted Trooper Francis.

Francis said the woman was also speeding and had no insurance.
