Eventually the LEO met up with the car, who was a woman, who was cursing and loudmouthing and trying to resist any discussion to the point where the LEO found it necessary to put woman on ground and handcuff her. As it turned out, the woman is a deputy sheriff and her husband is a lieutenant in the sheriff's office. She was not jailed and, as the major in the sheriff's office said, "her not being jailed had nothing to do with her husband's high position" and "it would not have served any purpose in having her put in jail". I am paraphrasing the comments and loosely interpreting the exact situation but, in general, what I have said is basically the story. I wrote to the paper and told them how relieved I am that I can now run from the law and still go home afterwards. Whadayathink? Personally, IMO, the deputy certainly should be looking for a new job and an attorney,and the major should be reprimanded for stupid quotes and maybe he should look for a new job.

This story has a LOT left out of it. Not by you, Kelcarry, but the press. I saw all this on local TV also.
The first question that came to mind was why a fellow LEO was "giving the business" to that cop. That isn't standard procedure within the ranks. I think the caught woman officer must not be the most popular on the force and she finally got herself in a situation where they weren't going to protect her,and let her hang herself.

Just my take on it.
