Former Hampton GOP official arrested for impersonating a cop


    The former head of the local Republican Party in Hampton, Virginia was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly searching a local couple under the pretense of being a police officer.  

    Authorities charged 27-year-old Kyle P. Adams with two counts apiece of abduction, impersonating a police officer and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony for the incident on Tuesday night. He allegedly “detained” a 33-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman in Norfolk before leaving the scene in a black SUV. No one was injured, but Adams reportedly had a firearm at the time of his illegal search.

    Here’s the local newspaper story:…

    In 2012 he entered an Alford plea after being charged with embezzlement.

    Why am I not surprised he’s a Republican?
