    A 65-year-old woman was pulled over by police officers while driving through Tennessee after the officers mistook her car's Buckeye stickers - those commonly seen on the helmets of Ohio State football players - for a marijuana symbol.

    "It's just amazing they would be that dumb," said Bonnie Jonas-Boggioni, which pretty much sums up this entire story.

    Jonas-Boggioni and her husband, Giorgio Boggioni, 66, of Plano, Texas, were driving home through Tennessee from Columbus, Ohio, where they had attended a funeral for Jonas-Boggioni's mother.

    The two were pulled over a few miles east of Memphis, along I-40, and were greeted by a pair of black SUVs containing officers wearing "body armor and guns," Jonas-Boggioni told Joe Blundo of The Columbus Dispatch.

    Sorry, but I find that hard to believe. You could have stickers, all over your car of an actual Marijuana leaf and it is not justification for a traffic stop. There is more to this story then the new paper is telling, or it is BS........ Just saying.

    We had a club member get pulled over and ticketed in TN because his license plate frame covered the county area of the plate... so I do not doubt TN cops are a bit aggressive. :)

    I'd sure like to know what justification the police had for a stop. That sticker what ever its meaning is not a reason for a stop.

    Maybe the cops were Michigan fans. :lol:

    There has to be MORE to the story then the NEWS is telling. If it happened as stated, the couple have a law suit against county and state that would be massive.

    i have been on that stretch of I-40 between Chattanooga and Nashville and have seen the blacked out SUV's which usually are drug task force or narco officers and they just dont call them out on just a tip...usually someone has to have some pretty concrete evidence to support their claim...something is being left out

    I-24 Runs between Chattanooga & Nashville, I-40 runs west to east from Memphis thru Nashville & Knoxville to North Carolina.
