VIRGINIA STATE TROOPER HARASSMENT
Date of Interaction: 22 Sept. 2014
Individual Responsible: Trooper J M Buzzard
Outfit: Virginia State Police
Phone: (804) 674-2000
My wife and I were driving on 460 near Appomattox at around 1330 heading home, when a trooper – J.M. Buzzard – came up to us and kept passing – looking over at me and staring. He slammed on his brakes pulled in behind us and pulled us over. He approached me and asked why I was being pulled over. I said I didn’t know. He said it was because I wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. My wife told him “Sir, he had his seatbelt on the whole time since we left Lynchburg.” Buzzard cut her off, called her a liar and said “Well I will give you the benefit of the doubt” in sarcastic way.
Since Buzzard couldn’t give us a ticket he leaned over to look at the front windshield and said “I’m pulling you over for expired inspection.”
