A Stafford man learned speeding does not always get you to your destination faster after being pulled over in Southwest Stafford.

On November 1st, at approximately 11:00 p.m. Deputy R.B. Brooks was traveling on Warrenton Road near Holly Corner Road when he observed a vehicle traveling 67 MPH in a 45 MPH zone. Deputy Brooks activated his emergency lights to conduct a traffic stop.

The driver, Michael Thorisson, 29, had his license revoked due to a previous DUI. Thorisson was placed in handcuffs while an inventory search of the vehicle was conducted. During this search, multiple suspected controlled substances were located.

Thorisson was charged with driving after forfeiture of his license, possession of a controlled substance, as well as, speeding. He was held at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond.

Great job to Deputy Brooks for not only making our roads safer, but getting dangerous narcotics off the street. If you want to make a difference in your community, visit to see all our job opportunities.
