When two Georgia police officers came across a familiar man with a bushy black mustache in a gray suit, who was sitting in a pickup truck with a woman strapped to a car seat on the roof, they suspected they had come across a signature from Borat Sagdiyev Pranks.
The funny encounter took place on Main Street in the Lilburn suburb of Atlanta in January and was captured on a police camera video.
Part of the interaction between the world famous fake Kazakh journalist, played by Sacha Baron Cohen, and the two clever cops can be seen in the new comedy Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, which is now available on Amazon Prime.

Cohen handed the officer a piece of paper and, referring to his fake daughter sitting on the roof, said, "I have this owner's certificate showing that she is one of my properties."
Cohen's much-anticipated sequel to his raunchy 2006 breakout hit, Borat, caused a stir this week when it showed a scene in which President Donald Trump's senior adviser Rudy Giuliani was in a compromising position on a hotel room bed with an actress you can see Borat's 15-year-old playing – old daughter Tutar.
The Georgia body camera footage first captured by The Smoking Gun also shows Maria Bakalova, 24, showing Borat's descendants casually sitting on the cab of a yellow pickup truck with an empty horse trailer attached to the back.
According to an incident report, gimmicks occurred when an anonymous caller contacted the police on the afternoon of January 27 to report a suspect.
Officers Alvey Lamb and Daniel Bride, responding to the scene, approached the parked vehicle that had no ignition key and apparently recognized the 49-year-old British actor in his Borat costume, but kept the charade going for the next 13 minutes .

In the video captured by Lamb's camera, his partner was seen interviewing Cohen, who said, "I'm new to this town." The bride's body camera shot was not available.
When asked for ID, the actor handed the bride a piece of paper and, referring to his pretend daughter strapped in a child seat on the roof, said, "I have this owner's certificate stating that she has one my properties is. "
While Lamb ran the license plates on the pickup truck and trailer, Bride asked Cohen to see a driver's license or something with your name on it in English.
Cohen asked the officer, "What's a problem, officer?" to which Bridge replied, "Well, one, you have someone strapped to the top of your car. Do you find that a bit strange?"
While it is difficult to recognize Cohen's answer from the video with the body camera, Borat informs the police in the trailer for the film: "Only men and bears are allowed in the car."
Cohen later handed Bride what appeared to be a fake California driver's license called "Peter".
Officer Alvey Lamb asked this passerby if he was the one calling 911 and then told him the man in the truck looked and spoke like Borat

"Peter is your first name?" The bride asked the joke with a mustache, who answered after a pause: "Yes."
After Lamb glanced at the beaten up vehicle with its leather luggage on the back of the truck, he said the woman sitting quietly on the roof didn't have to be up there long because the car seat wasn't buckled very well . & # 39;
Lamb then jokingly referred to the classic 1960s sitcom The Beverly Hillbillies and informed his partner, "You know, at least when the Clampetts went to Beverly, they got Grandma buckled up pretty well."
Meanwhile, the bride continued to question Cohen, asking what month and year it was.
'What year is it? In my or your country & # 39; replied the comic.

When asked about the age of the woman on the roof, Cohen said she was 212 moons old.
As Bride continued his exchange with Cohen, Lamb crossed the street after spotting a man snapping a picture of the scene and asked if he was the one calling 911.
The passerby replied that he hadn't made the report and that he had never seen the yellow truck in the area.
"I suspect someone is here with a camera filming because the guy who's in the truck looks like Borat and speaks like Borat and all that other good stuff," Lamb explained, adding, "someone messes up."

When the lamb returned to the truck, the bride gave him Cohen's fake identity card and said the driver claimed he was from Uzbekistan.
"You know what that is, don't you?" Lamb said to his partner, giggling. "Dude, there's a camera here and I'm not talking about the one on our chests … I haven't signed a waiver or anything. I'm not getting paid for it."
The bride then asked aloud what language they speak in Uzbekistan, to which Lamb replied with a laugh: "I speak two languages: English (and) Redneck."
Then he lightly dismissed the entire episode and remarked, “There is no key in the ignition. I do not care. & # 39;
The bride went back to the vehicle and asked Cohen, "How long will she sit on the truck?"
Cohen replied and said, “Officer, I obeyed the law. I didn't feed her an onion. & # 39; Then he said to Bride, "Not that I want to bribe you, but I have a potato here."
Before they parted, Bride told Cohen that his passenger had to come off the roof.
Pointing out that she could legally drive in the back of the truck, Lamb said, “212 moons. that's over 18, isn't it? & # 39;
A police call log gave a brief summary of the incident: “The driver is disguised as Borat and claims to be from Uzbekistan. The driver has a valid California driver's license. No mental health problems are indicated. The date and year are known. Woman sitting on top of the vehicle didn't speak, seems like some kind of prank or hidden camera show. & # 39;
