Indiana Jones has traded in his whip to become a New York City traffic cop!

Early Sunday evening, Harrison Ford was spotted directing traffic near the Midtown tunnel after his Benz was caught in the traffic jam. (Of course, he has a Mercedes!  )

Part of his active duty was caught on video    and has since been posted to TMZ! The clip shows Ford waving his arms and yelling for nearby cars to get out of the way... much to the surprise of stunned drivers entering the tunnel!

Whether you know him as Harrison Ford, Indiana Jones, or Hans Solo, he is now also your friendly neighborhood traffic cop, ready to prevent clear and present danger.

Well done Harrison, well done.
