So, surprise surprise, video seized from the cars. We've seen this illegal police action abused recently. And a Dallas deputy sheriff suspended for 38 days without pay for his wrongful actions. As I said before, I don't foresee this entire thing ending well for Augusta County or Sheriff Fisher.

Since they were stopped and issued citations in Highland County by Virginia State Police and Conservation Police Officers, how can Sheriff Fisher and a deputy of Augusta County be sued??? One would tend to think that the VSP know when it is legal to tow a car and when it's not.

If I was the Augusta CA, id file for forfeiture of the vehicles and crush them in public. Keep the foolishness on the beltway.

Let's not forget all the people that have been KILLED from cars that have been driven recklessly. Anything from switching lanes to running off the road hitting people in their yards, and passing other cars at high speed. And those are single car accidents. Here you have a HERD of NERDS who think that it's okay to play in our area because there is less traffic. It was a ticking bomb waiting to go off.

Sort of shocked at all of this. I saw one Yellow Ferarri which stood out like a sore thumb in Waynesboro about 30 mins before I read this story, so I am going to assume this was related. Clearly the officers will have some explaining to do. I wonder if the impound is in hopes of being able to auction the cars off to help with some local money needs if all cars impounded were of the Ferrari level.

Let's not forget that the police do this on a daily basis nationwide!

Off duty cop going to overtime job, speeds up to 100 and 120 mph for no good reason whatsoever. State trooper pulls him over and arrests him, good girl trooper, job well done!!!!

All of the cars have been released from impound. There will be no auction. Most of the cars were BMWs, Lexuses, and Nissans. The most exotic was a McLaren and there was one Mustang. No Ferraris.
