- "I do not take kindly to you shining your light in the eyes of my female companion."
- ―Bill Compton, to State Trooper[src]
The State Trooper is a member of law enforcement on the HBO original series True Blood. Played by American actor David Pease, the State Trooper pulls Bill Compton over as he and Sookie Stackhouse are driving home from Fangtasia, a vampire nightclub in Shreveport, Louisiana. Glamoured by Bill into letting them go, the state trooper appears only on the episode "Escape from Dragon House" in the series' first season.
The State Trooper is a stern enforcer of the law, yet easily glamoured by vampires.
The State Trooper is a law enforcement agent working in the state of Louisiana.
While driving home from Shreveport, the State Trooper pulls Bill and Sookie over. He asks if they were at Fangtasia, then asks to see Sookie's neck for bite marks. He shines his light on her, which angers Bill. Bill glamours him and takes his gun from him- pointing it at him and saying, he doesn't take kindly him shining the light on Sookie, or the fact he called him "son". He keeps the state troopers gun, and as they drive away, the trooper pees in his pants from being scared. ("Escape from Dragon House")
