Webb was responding to a Fox News report of the Metropolitan Police Department arresting drivers for registration violations.

Police spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump told The Associated Press early Friday that officers are sworn to enforce laws that are on the books. She says the city allows for a grace period and many officers use further discretion.

Sounds like the city is going way too far given these are normally traffic tickets that end up in traffic court.

I'd say there must be more to the story.
