This is just embarrassing.
Two guys were speeding in a Mustang near San Diego on Sunday, and led cops on a high speed chase.
Eventually they stopped, ran, and were caught.
But the cops got into an armed standoff with a third person in the backseat of the car . . . who turned out to be a life-size "Star Wars" stormtrooper statue.
You can hear the cops shouting, "State Police! I know you're in the car!"
