This particular Georgia mayor was doing a little, “Puff, Puff, Give…” if you know what I mean, until he realized he just passed the doobie to the wrong person. This is just one more in a long list of crimes committed by the political class [COUGH, HILLARY, COUGH], because they think the rules just don’t apply to them for some reason. Here, a Georgia mayor was arrested for impersonating a police officer while smoking weed. Unreal.
JACKSONVILLE, GEORGIA — In response to numerous complaints related to the daily personal use of a marked and equipped City of Jacksonville patrol car by an individual who possesses no law enforcement authority, Investigators with the Telfair County Sheriff’s Office conducted an inquiry.
Investigators interviewed several individuals who reported that an individual known to them as John Dopson, the town’s “appointed” mayor, can be observed daily operating a marked and equipped Jacksonville GA patrol car. Investigators obtained at least 3 statements from individuals who reported witnessing Dopson operating the patrol vehicle on the highways with its blue lights activated.
One local resident provided a statement recounting an incident in which Dopson followed her in the marked patrol car and activated its blue lights in order to effect a traffic stop. Another statement recounts a citizen witnessing Dopson pursuing a vehicle on U.S. Highway 441 with the blue lights fully activated.
Local law enforcement officers as well as local citizens routinely observe Dopson using a marked and equipped patrol car as his primary means of personal transportation.
On February 1, 2016, Telfair County Deputies stopped a blue 2008 Dodge Charger, a fully marked and equipped Jacksonville Georgia police cruiser on U.S. 441 near its intersection with Ga. 117, its sole occupant, John Dopson was arrested for impersonating a police officer and for suspicion of Driving under the influence of drugs. Dopson was transported the Telfair County Jail where he declined the state administered tests of his blood and urine test for the purpose of determining if he was under the influence of intoxicants. Dopson refused the test and gave a statement to an arresting officer indicating the reason for his refusal was because he knew it would show positive for “weed”.
Already free on a previous bond for aggravated assault, Dopson was returned to jail where he awaits a new bond.
