Federal Agent Who Pulled Over Driver (For running a stop sign) Works For Treasury Department

Sounds like a good example of the political class gone nuts.

The federal agent who pulled over a motorist following a disagreement over who had the right-of-way after coming to a stop at an intersection has been identified as working for the U.S. Department of Treasury.

The Cherokee Sheriff’s Office said the male subject, who is employed with the department’s Atlanta Field Division, told police he “initiated the traffic stop due to another motorist failing to stop at the stop sign and almost causing (sic) an accident.”

Words were exchanged between the officer and the citizen around 4 p.m. Monday after they crossed paths near the intersection of Highway 372 and Highway 369 in Ball Ground. Deputies with the sheriff’s office were dispatched to meet with the citizen, who said a man in a silver Chevrolet Equinox “equipped with a single interior mounted blue light” pulled him over, the agency previously told Patch (SIGN UP: Get Patch’s Daily Newsletter and Real Time News Alerts. Or, if you have an iPhone, download the free Patch app).

In the video, the agent was wearing a blue and white striped Polo shirt, blue jeans, a badge with unidentified markings on his belt and a weapon on his hip. The motorist, who recorded the one-minute long encounter, can be heard asking the man, who kept his right hand over what appeared to be his weapon, why he pulled him over (The video, which contains adult language, can be viewed below).
