According to an incident report from the Georgia Department of Public Safety, David Milliron attempted to stop a tractor-trailer on Interstate 16 in his city-issued SUV.
The driver of the tractor-trailer told police he saw the vehicle with amber-colored lights on and wouldn't stop because they were not blue.
The driver of the tractor-trailer, identified as Joseph Milholen, told police in the report that Milliron stopped him because "he was losing load of saw dust and that he was going to call State Patrol to come write him a ticket."
The report states that Milliron "told him he was the highest ranking official in Stockbridge ... and he was allowed to stop vehicles based on the City Charter."
Calls to Milliron were not returned.
Stockbridge Mayor Mark Alarcon told CBS Atlanta‘s Mike Paluska there is no such language in the city's charter. Alarcon said this was a personnel issue and could not make any further comments, but that Milliron was headed to Savannah for a city-approved leadership conference.
According to Stockbridge City Attorney Bill Linkous, the case has been handed over to an outside investigator.
On the city's Facebook page Alarcon said he is taking the allegations against Milliron seriously.
No charges have been filed by Georgia State Patrol.
