SWEETWATER (WBIR) -

A Sweetwater man was stopped not once, but twice in one day for driving his car at night using only flashlights to light the way.

WBIR reports that Knoxville police said the man strapped the flashlights onto his bumper using a bungee cord.

Officers first stopped the man at 2 a.m. in east Knoxville on Monday, according to a post on the Knoxville Police Department's Facebook page. Just 18 hours later, police pulled over the man again in north Knoxville.

In both traffic stops, officers cited the driver for improper headlights, violation of the state registration law, and driving without insurance.
