After controversy arose regarding Sunday’s traffic stop of Virginia Delegate Chris Hurst, the Christiansburg Police Department is taking a closer look at what happened.
Authorities say Hurst was pulled over by an officer around 2 a.m. on the US-460 overpass between the downtown Christiansburg and Peppers Ferry Road exits.
The officer said he saw Hurst’s car swerve across the right side fog-line several times and drive over the speed limit for a short period of time.
The Police Department announced Thursday that an internal investigation has been initiated regarding the stop.
This investigation will be completed within 30 days, according to a town spokeswoman.
Below is the full statement from the Police Department announcing the investigation:
