Calif. firefighter makes traffic stop, authority to do so questioned

The sheriff's departmentís legal team says firefighters shouldn't be pulling cars over


RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. — There was no place for wrongdoing to get comfortable at 2013′s version of  “Rafting Gone Wild.” More than 100 sets of eyes – police, sheriff’s deputies, park rangers – were on the lookout for anything that looked illegally out of place in Rancho Cordova.

Patrick Brosnan wasn’t even trying to raft, he was just driving near the Sunrise access to the American River when he got stopped.

“He turned on his lights as soon as we came out of that street right there,” said Brosnan, pointing to what he said was the site of a very confusing encounter. He was stunned to find out the eyes trained on him. The ones attached to the person who pulled him over in the middle of all the rafting traffic belonged to a Sacramento Metro firefighter.
