Cell phones have plenty of uses, but headlight isn't one of them.

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office stopped a scooter Monday night on U.S. Highway 19 because it didn't have a functioning headlight.

According to a post on the Sheriff's Office Facebook page, the driver was trying to use a cell phone light as a headlight by bungee-cording the phone to a mirror.

It didn't impress the corporal who made the stop.

Authorities didn't say if the driver was charged, but the driver was sent home walking, without his scooter.
