DAVIS COUNTY -- A Utah Highway Patrol mannequin featured prominently on a DUI enforcement billboard is missing something: his clothes.

The billboard along northbound I-15 near the Salt Lake/Davis County line reads, "I see you Mr. Drunk Driver."

The Utah Highway Patrol says the mannequin trooper is a popular guy. Somebody got up on the billboard late Sunday and ripped his clothes off.

Sgt. Ted Tingey said, "Pretty much, I don't know whether it was a practical joke, or they were holding a grudge."

Tingey said the person or persons who did this took the pants, the shirt and the hat. It would have been hard to do since the clothes were super-glued on.

The mannequin is expected to be back this weekend, fully dressed.

The mannequin and his message are part of a new campaign to let everyone know troopers are on the lookout for drunk drivers, and if they catch you, they'll arrest you. The billboard will remain in place until July.
