Georgia lawmaker arrested for threatening police after being arrested for ‘federal telwork legislation’

A Georgia lawmaker was arrested for allegedly threatening to kill federal officials after being pulled over for allegedly driving a federal truck without a license plate.

State Rep. Matt Clements, who is from Marietta, Georgia, was pulled over on Friday night after allegedly driving without a valid license plate, according to an arrest affidavit.

Clements told police he wanted to “kill” the police officers because they were harassing him and because they didn’t know how to stop a car, the affidavit said.

He was arrested and charged with two counts of menacing, the FBI said in a statement.

He was released on a $5,000 bond and was expected to be arraigned on Tuesday.
