The police chief in the small town of Temple, Ga., told WSB-TV that his department’s encounter with a purported “sovereign citizen” issued a traffic ticket in November has turned into a nightmare.

Chief Timothy Shaw did not identify the recipient of the ticket, but told the station that a judge has issued a protective order.

From WSB-TV Channel 2, quoting the chief:

“I received Mapquest driving directions that he had pulled up, from his personal residence to my personal residence. Also his personal residence to my mother and father’s personal residence in Florida.”

Other worrisome events that sprouted from the traffic encounter ensued, the chief told the station.

    2006 WL 1049101 This is where Judge Jenkins ruled against money liens obtained through fake arbitration

    2007 WL 321398 More of the same

    2007 WL 321398 Judge Jenkins awarded Uintah county and its officers $45,587.50 in legal fees against Richmond. Can’t tell if it was ever collected.
