A Youngstown police officer who pulled over a car that ran a red light on Wednesday is apparently a big fan of Quentin Tarantino films. The driver — Youngstown-resident Nicholas Serra, who was filming the traffic stop with his iPhone — got an excited reaction from the cop as he reached into his pocket for his driver's license.

"Do you have a 'bad motherfucker' wallet?" the officer asks Serra, before looking over to his partner on the other side of the car, "I gotta let him go just on the fact he's got a 'bad motherfucker' wallet."

He does, in fact, end up letting him go with a verbal warning. Although it's not seen in the video, Serra's ticket-saving wallet must have been a replica of the one Samuel L. Jackson's character Jules Winnfield used in Tarantino's classic 1994 move, Pulp Fiction. Check out the video of the traffic stop here:

Description: "My "Bad Motherfucker" wallet saves me from another traffic citation. While cruising around after a big storm, Youngstown police officers in an unmarked car see me treat a red light as if it were a stop sign. In my 02 Explorer I have a Havis police console with police/fire scanner and an amateur radio transceiver."

The officer, a vice cop, mentions he drove through the red light at the intersection of Oak Hill and Myrtle, which is in the middle of Youngstown.

And, of course, if you want to watch the Pulp Fiction scene where the 'bad motherfucker' wallet originates—the amazing ending scene of one of the best movies ever made—just watch here:

The wallet reference begins one minute in:

Jules: "I want you to open that bag and find my wallet."
"Pumkin": "Which one is it?"
Jules: "It's the one that says 'bad motherfucker.'"

Serra's video is spreading all over the internet, landing on today's front page of Reddit. Click here for Serra elaborating and adding context to what is seen in the video.
