    MORRISVILLE, N.C. -- Authorities said Thursday they have charged a man with assault on a government official after an officer said the man coughed into his face during a traffic stop.
    ~snip~
    "He says I coughed in his face," Kauffman told The News & Observer of Raleigh. "But that would only work if he had a 4-foot-long face."

    I think this cop has a bit too much power! Ridiculous to charge assault for that! Waste of time and money for everyone. The guy was sick for gosh sakes!:sick:
