From Morris News Service:
Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents arrested a Commerce police officer this week on charges he ran a license plate check for personal reasons.
GBI agents arrested Officer Matthew Scott Rogers, 44, on Tuesday on a single charge of criminal of invasion of privacy using a computer.
Read more in the Augusta Chronicle. This appears to be a really quick response by both the Commerce police department, who received a complaint last week, and the GBI.
Update: G.W. Schulz reminds me that the Center for Investigative Reporting wrote about this issue in October, “Bureaucrats can’t resist celebrity snooping in government databases.”
