Hamilton County District Attorney Neal Pinkston said at a Friday press conference that he is calling for an investigation of the traffic stop of an African-American citizen after viewing dash cam video, the Chattanoogan reports. "I was somewhat disturbed by what I saw. I felt it warranted an immediate investigation," Pinkston said. He said he assigned an investigator from his office to look into the stop, and has notified the TBI, the FBI, the U.S. Attorney's Office and legal counsel for Gov. Bill Lee.
