There was no abuse of authority. Trooper Wyrick followed the law and highway patrol protocol when he stopped and arrested the woman. He was serving the citizens when he took a potentially drunk driver off of the street. The video footage available does not show him being vicious or demanding. It actually shows him being very patient with a very difficult person.
The governor's incompetence has nothing to do with this incident. That is a fact that has been blatant since before she took office. I guess that really doesn't say a lot for the people who voted for her.
